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 in intense shades advance and withdraw powerfully in each of the images that compose the series. At the horizon, they concede their role of underlining 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 sand. Minimalist and almost identical, the various marine views captured by Antti Vittala\'s lens plunge the spectator into the core of a powerful and boundless natural world and are reminiscent of the dramatic landscapes of French photographer Gustave Le Gray.
