MORE INFORMATION ABOUT DELIVERY

The artist

Jan Erik Waider is a visual artist and fine art photographer based in Hamburg. His focus is atmospheric and abstract landscape photography of the distant North: Norway, Iceland, Greenland and beyond. Jan’s desire to explore remote and rarely seen places provides unique opportunities to shoot magnificent vistas and landscapes. His meticulous and well-planned approach to his fine art photography immerses him in his surroundings. He was always drawn to the North. Exploring the cold, raw beauty of its landscapes became a form of meditation for him, and photography a way to preserve those fleeting memories. These quiet mesmerizing moments of contemplation and reflection are what inspire Jan the most. These are the moments where he feels connected and “at home.” His photography is a way of preserving these fleeting memories. Jan’s work should be seen as a visual journal. His photography gives us insight into his mind and imagination.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

This colony of Chinstrap penguins was the first I met on an iceberg in Antarctica and both the special shape of the iceberg and the animals fascinated me instantly. From the sailing ship Bark Europa I could observe the animals in peace and quiet and none of the penguins seemed to be disturbed by our presence. On the contrary. The animals often swam towards or parallel to the ship as if we were a whale or inhabitant of Antarctica. The penguins must fear the sea leopard in particular, but killer whales are also often present. Therefore, an iceberg offers good protection and also a good overview of the surroundings to recognize dangers early.
