Traveler 63 at Night is from Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz's ongoing series Travelers. Utilizing a variety of materials, Martin & Muñoz construct miniature scenes and insert them into snow globes. Martin works on the sets, painting and positioning the figures in constructed environments. The final compositions are captured in photographs by Muñoz, which are meticulously stitched and adjusted digitally for the final effect. These desolate landscapes become monumental in scale through the prints. As a point of emphasis, the wilderness is the main character. The tress and the rocks bear silent witness and the ever-present drifting snow promises to cover the whole catalogue of miseries in a silent blanket of white.
