Moscow, Russia-based photographer Andrew Osokin captures tiny, fragile snowflakes that exist in the harsh, cold winter.
In his series of macro photographs, he reveals the flakes of snow that would normally go unnoticed, and get crushed up under our feet or into a snowman.
The individual shots show the complex, mesmerizing geometry of snowflakes that are almost magically created—reflecting the tiny details in this large universe—before being melted away forever.
