Arctic wonderland

During my study break, I stumbled on beautiful photo-painting-design work in The New Yorker by Sarah Anne Johnson. During an artist residency, she sailed on board a double-masted schooner in the Norwegian territory of the Arctic Circle. After the trip, she created “Arctic Wonderland“, a photo gallery that uses paint, Photoshop and embossing on the photographs she took.

“I do this to create a more honest image, to show not just what I saw, but how I feel about what I saw.”

“It seemed so pristine and perfect, vast and strong, but also somehow delicate and fleeting.”

It’s definitely a different take, to document nature while conveying feelings. Creative and lovely.
