SHORT LIST

Statement

moments

As I continue to shoot mountains and natural landscapes, I find moments when the facial expressions of these undergo change, and within these, moments that seem to reflect my own emotions. A world that is reality, yet somehow far removed from the world. The scenery synchronized with my inner self is unforgettable, yet transient and faint. I have frozen it in photographs to moor it in time.

Jury selection

One of the most difficult things to photograph when it comes to landscapes is beauty. A landscape photograph taken in a stunning location can so quickly tip over into something that is too beautiful. These photos keep a wonderful balance of a lovely scene that is tempered with the haziness of memory, or regret, or melancholy.
