Shrouds

Landscape Personal



 

 

 

The dying glacier’s face is covered with a veil of white sheets. Desperately and somewhat failing to protect the age-old giant from the sun and the greenhouse-effect. Still in summer, it melts twenty feet in three weeks. Covered in dust, sand and soot of years, white turned to grey yet there is a glimpse of brightness to be found under the cover.
In the next 100 years, many glaciers will disappear, never to resurface in the cradle of winter. Gone. Forever.
The sheets are laid over a man made ice cave that is, hopefully, equally important to glaciology as it is to tourism.
For now the glacier is tucked in tightly in its blanket of canvas. Resembling a graveyard of sails without ships.
Going nowhere.
Shrouds is the first installment in a personal series exploring the metaphoric correlation between glaciers and mental health.

To shoot in such an enthralling scenery surely is every photographer's dream. And so I felt very lucky to travel to one of the world's most beautiful landscapes with my good friends, to kind of celebrate my late birthday. From the start of our drive to the Appenzell region, we got more excited the closer we got to our destination. The whole drive was out of a movie and when we packed our cameras and started the engine, the first ...

The landscape of Lake Eibsee – Ultralight Beam
Lake Eibsee is a stunning photo location directly underneath Germany's highest mountain- the famous Zugspitze. My friend Linh and I went for a stroll to catch the first light of the day which should turn out to be a constant beam of ultralight and awesomeness! The already wonderful landscape with it's magical forests and small islands was just bathed in warm and bright light. What a spectacular view of one of Germany's most beautiful mountain lakes!
