STUDY OF STRUCTURE AND FORM
“Both our nature and the spirit of the natural world is revealed by form.”
Starting with the Arctic at Lake Talvatis, Sweden, Isztin’s photographic series cover a wide range of environments, including other parts of Europe, North and South America, and Asia.
Isztin waits for the perfect combination of elements to create serene portraits of place with the deliberation and sensitivity of a classical painter. Using traditional methods, he shoots with film and natural light.
“While seeking places of contemplation in the world around me” says Isztin, “I became fascinated with the relationship between natural order and human influence. In photographing these unique places, I discovered that it is through attentive and patient study of shape, design, and structure that the spirit of our natural world and its inhabitants is revealed.”
