We seem to be stumbling across some great creatives situated in The Netherlands, this time it’s Amsterdam to be specific and the individual goes by the name of Misha De Ridder.
Misha’s work focuses on natural phenomena and plays on the mysteriousness of it all, “unreal realities” some might say. For example the extraordinary shape of a tree, a mountain, a shadow, a cloud or the mirroring reflection of nature in a lake. He looks to capture these temporary states in the environment through the medium of still photography.
What I like about his work is that you can tell that the camera is being pushed to its technical limits, he’s really playing with photography to the extent that you can’t tell whether it’s a painting or an image. It makes you step back and think “is that real?”. I also like the fact that these photos do not feature any human intervention as such, it’s just one man and his camera with the open world untouched infront of him.
