How’s it made?

Sleetslide photographic technique is the process of altering images by placing the ice pieces on the photograph. The physical structure of ice distorts the original shape and refracts light. It is also used to create abstract art.

The main stage of the process of creation sleetslide image is shooting printed photographs covered with ice.

The final result may be varied depending on how the ice interacts with photographs, the depth of freezing and additional distorting factors.
