"We are trying to find things that surprise us; that have a critical combination of tragedy and comedy in our world we set the parameters for. The whole body of work was generated from a culture shock that we went through when we moved from New York to the countryside....Eventually the woods and the countryside weren't as inviting and pleasant as we'd imagined them. We discovered a lot of things we found disturbing...hearing gunshots in the forest, having seen bears, almost stepping on a snake in the forest...The snow globes were close-ups, sort of narrative snippets involving interactions between people and nature, whereas, with the panoramas, the people are integrated into nature. It has a pantheistic feeling where there is a democratic quality between the forces of nature and people being just part of the forces of nature."

Walter Martin and Paloma Muí±oz work collaboratively to create mesmerizing miniature snowbound environments, then record them in vivid color photographs. At first glance the work is playful; on closer observation, it often reveals darker narratives: lone wanderers survey the frigid landscape, and people and creatures exhibit unnatural tendencies.

Martin and Muí±oz create the figures, either adapting ready-made figurines or shaping them out of clay. Martin works on the sets, painting and positioning the figures in constructed environments. The final compositions are captured in photographs by Muí±oz, which are meticulously stitched and adjusted digitally for the final effect.
