PARADISE LOST? 2017
Using long exposure photography techniques, this collection of photographs was captured on the stunningly beautiful Maldivian island known as South Ari Atoll. Some experts say that the Maldives could disappear in 20-30 years due to the rise in global sea levels. It's important to me that we record the beauty of these pockets of paradise, not just with point and shoot holiday snaps, but documenting the elegance with long exposure to offer future generations a new aesthetic. These long exposure photographs look deeper into the soul of the islands and signifies the time that is passing before our eyes before the unimaginable loss of a planetary paradise. A selection of images in this series was awarded 3rd place in the 2018 International ND Awards in the Nature / Seascape category. All the images in this series are available as limited edition prints and are print to last on hahnemuhle 305gsm fine art paper.
