Sigalit Landau‘s latest project, an eight-part photo series called Salt Bride, represents a uniquely captivating collaboration with the mysticism inherent in the cherished lake’s chemistry. Landau submerged a black gown in its waters in 2014 and returned multiple times over the span of three months to capture its salinity-induced transformations, as glimmering crystals gradually conquered the dark fabric. To Landau, the dress soon appeared “like snow, like sugar, like death’s embrace”—poetic language to describe an effect that manifests as delicately magical, despite its earthly genesis.
