In March 2008, I sent a letter to the editor of Popular Photography to comment on a photo of ice in the latest issue. In my letter, I mentioned that I had been experimenting with a unique method of sculpting and photographing ice, and sent a few samples as well as a link to my website. Later that day, John Owens, Editor in Chief of Popular Photography, replied and indicated that he was considering including an article and one of my images in the May 2008 issue. He asked me to write a short article and that was the last I heard about it. When the May issue arrived, and my article was not there, I was a little disappointed, but I was happy to have been considered. Much to my surprise, when I opened the June issue, there was my photo and article! A scan of the page appears below.

This is really beautiful - but it looks like it might be something slimy and gross.
Gorgeous abstract images!
The colors are extraordinary and the textures really cool (so to speak)!

These ice shots are really cool - really. Get it? Seriously, they're very beautiful.
I love this one, the colors and the bubbles are nice.
Another beautiful shot...
Wow, I really like this series.
You need to do a coffee-table book with these images!
Very cool series, Dom.
Are you sure it's ice? I think it's a NASA photo of the surface of Jupiter. I can see the great eye in the lower right. Very nice series!
This is really pretty - they are all so different.
I really like what I am seeing.
Hey cool concept and nice images. I always enjoy when someone shares the details of how they arrived at the image Thanks.
Very cool (literally!)
Nice and creative work.
The colors and details are all fantastic!!! Great idea!
I like them all.
Looks so much like an abstract painting.
Reminds me of a jellyfish.
Wow, looks like veins or something...nice!
This one's eerie - looks like blood on ice.
You really discovered a cool process with this series.
Love this one, colours and light are amazing.
These are great.
They are all beautiful!
This looks more like a gel than ice. That's fantastic.
Absolutely organic! Very creative!
