Over the course of his life, Wilson A. Bentley photographed an astounding number of snow crystals—more than 5000 to be exact. It’s from this extensive collection that the 20x200 curatorial team hand-picked nine of our favorite flakes and composed them into the single 3x3 grid image you see here. This snowflake assortment not only provides a sense of the broad range of Bentley’s photomicrographs, but also gives a collector ample opportunity to appreciate the meticulousness of Bentley’s work and the natural symmetry that made his subjects so dang stunning.

Bentley would go on to capture more than 5,000 icy crystals over the course of his life, setting the precedent for snowflake photography and informing scientific opinion on the subject. In fact, it was Bentley (in collaboration with professor George Henry Perkins) who first made the case that no two snowflakes are alike, solidifying that arctic adage. It’s no wonder the farmer-turned-groundbreaking photographer became known as “Snowflake” Bentley.
