Earth Canvas is a collection of images that capture the Earth in its tiniest details, both in its simpler forms and more intricate patterns. Over my journey as a photographer, I’ve always been intrigued by such details and would often find myself completely rapt, looking at ordinary scenes which, with a closer look, were in fact extraordinary.
The goal of this project is to find extremely unique scenes, in nature, that highlight how, once the Earth is reduced to a visually attractive mixture of lines, shapes and colours, the mind begins to imagine and wander. Whether these images are taken while flying at several hundreds feet from the ground or just from a few inches away, the result is the feeling of being projected into another dimension and it’s in that moment that you perceive the extraordinary.
This is the purpose of this collection, for you to focus entirely on the harmony created by shapes and colours and forget all about the subject itself. I hope you’ll find this same sense of loss in space, time and perception by owning a piece of Earth Canvas.
(Each image of this collection is real, not composite, and captures elements that are found in nature, not artificial).
101 images in total, edition 1/1. Image 101 will be taken from Space.
This collection will be divided into multiple drops. Images in the first drop are priced 0.3 ETH each. Images in the following drops will increase in value and meet the floor price.
