Biography

Traveling around the world to such locales as Iceland, Lapland, Morocco, Spain, England, and Dubai, photographer Kalle Kataila makes melancholic landscape images that recall German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich. In each image, a figure, sometimes Kataila himself, stands dwarfed by the majestic scenery, lost in silent contemplation. “I hope my photographs capture the experience of being present in a moment and observing the landscape in stillness.” Kataila explains. “I also hope that my photographs can help explore our relationship with the environment.”
