Man vs Nature - Black & White
Like everybody else this year, traveling for tourism was not really an option for most of us. Luckily though, right before the world started going into lockdowns, I had the chance to go on a trip mid February to Iceland with the Offbeat crew led by my favorite photographers Paul Zizka and Dave Brosha.
Every year the offbeat community has a photography theme, where this year's theme was Black and White. Before 2020, I can count on one hand the photos I processed as Black & White, yet without realizing, a lot of photos I took in Iceland fell naturally into Black & White mostly due to the black lava sand and large silhouette mountains.
Without further ado, here are my favorite captures from this year showcasing humans in the face of nature. Iceland was a constant reminder of the power nature has, whether it came in the form of beauty, force or size. I constantly felt in awe and I hope I was able to portray this in my photos.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes a bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water my friend.
