Beyond Our Horizon

Beyond Our Horizon

description

Eighty percent of all stimuli we receive from our surroundings are registered by the sense of sight - through light, colours and space around us. The photographs capture the natural landscape of British Columbia, Yukon and Alaska. Monumental mountains, a panorama of changing seasons, wildfires, receding glaciers, their folds and canyons. Every picture embodies a story that is now more than ever being shaped by climate change. The photographs are immortalisation of the individual stories of these divine places. Essentially, they are the expression of light that we ultimately perceive as objects and space. What can be seen next year, how will the places change and how will the story evolve? The “Beyond Our Horizon” series combine vision and our imagination to inspire us to discover unique moments in everyday life. Its task is to extend the well-known environment by the endless discovery of hidden layers, details and new connections, thus creating a space for a safe exploration of a deeper meaning behind each picture.
