The photographic series entitled “Antarctica” by Santiago Vanegas attests to the moving experience the artist experienced during a journey across that frozen continent that is being subjected to a radical transformation.
“States of Grace” is a portfolio of painterly photographs illuminating the sinuous grace of organic forms in the natural world. Drawn to the sensual, I seek serenity in visual balance and create glimpses of beauty to still the chaos in my mind.
My work aims to unveil the unique characteristics of a variety of threatened species as they are removed from their environment through post processing and presented as ambassadors for their species in the wild.
Trying to explain the concept behind my photography is never as fun as actually pressing the shutter button. Why do I try so hard to create the images I dream about? Why developed a style over the years in an attempt to define how I see the world?

I am a 33-year-old engineer, born in Milano, Italy. I have always enjoyed travelling, but it’sseven years ago, when I moved to Australia and was captivated by its breathtaking landscapes, that I really fell in love with photography.
