Avanto

Avanto series is capturing the vulnerable moment when our natural instincts and fleshly body is challenged with freezing cold water. It’s an examination in which the steady line between the safe space outside the dark and unknown water is exposed and captured. In the photographs emphasis is on the first seconds of the body immersing into the freezing water. In Avanto the viewer can also examine the beauty of the light reflecting through the thick ice. The series exposes the most authentic and bare reactions. For one the line between the water and the air is physical for the other it’s mental. The violent reaction transitions into a soothing experience in which serenity and endorphins overcome the initial shock.

“The biggest sources of inspiration and themes for my work come from the nature. I am an outdoor enthusiast and have always been interested in the cultures surrounding rural and outdoor life. I live through these experiences and also want to deliver this to the viewer”.
