Nature is an infinite spectacle but closed in our claustrophobic cities it is increasingly difficult to enjoy its beauty. Luckily, there are those who dedicate their souls and their bodies to the discovery of faraway places and, through breathtaking photographs, manage to restore all their charm.
One of these is Gábor Nagy, a photographer from Budapest, who went all the way to cold Iceland to create his latest photographic project entitled “River Paintings“.
Gábor’s eye was especially captured by the colors of the earth and the landscape, so he decided to photograph them from above. The result? A series of shots reminiscent of watercolors in which strips of ochre, ochre, sky blue, grey color blend together to create hypnotic patterns.
Gábor Nagy himself describes River Paintings in this way:
Like watercolor on canvas, these glacier rivers are braiding their way through the Highlands of Iceland. I was always fascinated by the abstract forms of the Icelandic glacier rivers. The colors are vital nutrients as the river collects from the soil and carries for the ecosystem. After searching for new patterns and new locations on Google Earth for several months before my missions, it’s always good to finally see these extraordinary shapes with my own eyes.
