From the jacket- "Just after midnight on June 21, 2000, Midsummer Day, artist Andy Goldsworthy supervised the unloading of thirteen huge snowballs from refrigerated trucks onto the streets of London's financial district. What took place as an astonished public came upon these snowballs- each several feet in diameter and weighing about a ton- is captured here in spontaneous and evocative pictures taken by photographers working around the clock over the several days it took the snowballs to melt."
