Beautiful, pristine landscapes and seascapes have the power of making me emotional. But I cannot only look at them and store them in my memory. I need to photograph them. I have to photograph them, otherwise I will feel as if I am leaving a treasure behind, forever. I have to make that magnificent view somewhat mine. I need to carry it with me in a more concrete way than simply my memory of it. It is only unfortunate that my photos are only a shadow of the beauty captured by my eyes. But still, I need these shadows, as I know that to me they will be a powerful reminder of the true beauty. This new series of photos that I’d like to share with you were taken in North and South America, and Europe.
