2001: A Space Oddysey

010_A7A14135_315.jpg"I love many films but as a photographer I find Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece particularly inspiring for its capacity to tell a story through the sheer power of the image. With minimal sound and dialogue, the narrative relies predominantly on the strength of Kubrick's visuals."
 
Patagonia

Its remote and untouched beauty made me feel as if I was standing at the edge of the world."
 
The Ocean

My Camera

When I am somewhere remote, the camera is the portal bridging my experience to the public who will see my images. Because of that, I have a deep respect for it."
 
Antarctica

It's the starting point of my book The Noise of Ice: Antartica, which documents the effects of climate change. I waited six hours for the perfect light and weather conditions to take it. When you work with nature, you have no control over timing. It's a very different process from shooting in a studio.
