The artist

A child prodigy who tried his hand at photography from the age of 14, Finnish photographer Antti Viitala began his career in advertising and fashion before setting off to travel all over the globe. The photographer ponders the power of nature, from Iceland to South Africa. He only works in natural light, combining the techniques of the old masters with a perfect mastery of new technologies in order to capture the most subtle details, textures, and shades in his pictures.  ...

The horizon is always placed in the middle of the frame to emphasize the minimalist approach.

About the artwork

The recent work by the Finnish photographer in the "Seascapes" series proves to be a poetic observation of the South African coast off the coast of the Camps Bay beach near the city of Cape Town. The tides with shades of intense blues advance and withdraw powerfully in each of the eleven images that compose the series. At the horizon, they concede their role, allowing it to underline the stormy skies towering above them. Long exposure times are used to capture the unfolding of the waves as they come hurtling against the shore. In the midst of this hypnotic landscape, the photographer must stay immobile for several solitary hours, waiting for just the right autumnal lighting to sculpt the texture of the stormy waters and black sand. Minimalist and almost identical, the various marine views captured by Antti Vittala's lens plunge the spectator into the core of powerful and boundless nature.
