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.

A Photographer’s Adventure In The Swiss Mountains
Switzerland's beautiful landscapes actually never cease to amaze me! When I was there a few weeks ago, right before our Scotland-trip, I was enchanted by tall mountains and the most magical, almost surreal, light. 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 ...
Cloud Gazing, Switzerland 2017
The Appenzell region of Switzerland is famous for it's cheese but to photographers it bears wonders in terms of mountains, ridges, clouds and lakes. Fog gathers on the steep ridges so that it seems like a blanket for the massive chalk mountains that are characteristic for the Alpstein massif. The Saxerlücke, which is seen here, is one of the most famous examples for this occasion to occur. Watch out for the obligatory yellow dot.
