My photographic subjects are a mix of art and science. They include decaying and metamorphosing ice crystals; complex, color-separated laminar flows of oil and water; and the interaction of light with spider web threads. I hope my images are aesthetically pleasing and stimulate questions about the science involved. Most images are of areas between about 5 and 30 cm wide and abstract processes occurring over a far greater area. I grew up in Greenwich Village, have a PhD in geophysical exploration from Dartmouth College and retired in 2016 after a 42-year career at the Cold Regions Laboratory in Hanover, New Hampshire. During my career I used subsurface imaging radar to study the causes of structures within Antarctic ice sheets, Alaskan glaciers and permafrost, and lake subbottom sediments in New England. I live in West Lebanon, NH with my partner Marianne. My website is www.stevearconephotography.com, in which the same images found here have slightly different captions.
