Michigan Winter

Are Michiganders color deprived during the winter season? This question became the basis for my concept to create a photographic timeline titled Michigan Winter. Michigan, daily winter weather reports only give oral data but how can one translate the weather data of the season into the daily color seen in Michigan during winter? With the desire to find out how many dull color days Michiganders actually experience in the winter, I recorded daily, a snapshot of various landscapes starting in January 2017 up through the first day of spring to answer this question…Are Michiganders seasonally color deprived? The question is resolved in this visual timeline spanning the heart of Michigan winter, circa 2017.
