Landscape Photographer of the Year Shoots Mountains
To me, mountains are the ultimate earth feature, and the Matterhorn is one of the most sublime. Slate this morning published some fabulous photos of that peak(www.slate.com/blogs/behold/2013/06/07/nenad_saljic_a_photographer_slows_down_to_capture_gorgeous_black_and_white.html), The photographer, Nenad Saljic was recently was named Professional Landscape Photographer of the Year.at the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards. According to Slate,
Saljic describes himself as “old school” and shoots black-and-white because that was his initial entry point into photography. “I feel grey tones much better than color,” he wrote.
“Photography is the way I see reality, what I feel about the place. It is an amalgam of my emotions and my imagination. I want to produce a different, sometimes distorted vision of reality not visible by naked eye. Black-and-white photography is the best tool to convey my vision.”
This set of six images is in the tradition of the water lily and haystack studies by Monet or the famous set of trees photographed by some noted photographer in each of the four seasons.
