Haunting Wilderness Portraits

Photographer GreatBigWhale Creates Intimate Photos in the Wild

— February 18, 2015 — Art & Design
Self-taught Berlin-based photographer GreatBigWhales creates highly emotive images that walk a fine line between landscape and portraiture. The photographs follow a delicate formula that combines the use of vast open space, natural landscapes and often a pensive figure in the the front portion of the frame that is perfectly suited as a point of reference for the extreme depth of field.

GreatBigWhales' images feel highly personal within an overwhelming landscape, which is hard to achieve due to the vast scale of the background matter. Often depicting hilly, scenic views, GreatBigWhales does a lot to transport the viewer into the landscape, and it is likely that they'll make you want to explore the hiking potential in your own region.
