The marvel of silence, 2011-2014

In a time of rampant globalization, we are overwhelmet by the climate, the environment and the economy. We can no longer afford to think in terms of individual or nation. The transformation and the evolution of the environment, the relation between nature and culture, the effects of human actions on the environment are a new form of universal disaster.

In the Arctic Circle, the Svalbard archipelago offers an area of immense natural beauty dominated by majestic glaciers, countless spectacular fjords and vast tundra landscapes.

In the marvel of silence and this icy landscape, my photographic work is inspired by this breathtaking landscape. The Svalbard and the Iceland series create poetic images filled with emotions and characterized by an aesthetic that is near-minimalist.

Despite being sublime while referring to ideals, dreamscapes, artificial paradises, melancholic atmosphere, exoticism and science-fiction, these landscapes illustrate the instability and the fragility which characterize the present time.
