The idea for the series ‘Marine Species’ started with my fascination for the sea, water and everything that lives in it.
In this series I want to give the viewer a different look at a variety off sea life, that has been portrayed in a very aesthetic way, minimalistic, where the focus is on the subject, with a playful link incorporated in it.
By the use of very simply composition and lighting, with lots of dark umber tones, i wanted to give the images a painterly feeling. I started this personal project in 2019, & it is still a work in progress where occasionally, once in a while an image can be added.
