The series applies a similar concept of complexity and simplicity as in Timo’s previous works, but in reverse. The images capture the simplistic monotonous background (vast, white snow) and the vigorous human pursuit (fast skiing). People view skiing as an equally enjoyable and fun activity, as yet another way in which they can interact with nature. The colour scheme of the series is minimalistic, but the compositions are mesmerising in their complexity and abstract nature, they almost lack clearly defined geometrical structure. The captivating beauty of the landscape under a blanket of snow is offset by the fun elements of chaotic human whirl.
Timo Lieber is a London-based, dynamic, thoughtful, award-winning aerial and landscape photographer. Timo has photographed across the globe, from the Arctic Circle to remote deserts, and his images capture audiences worldwide.
Through five series of images, we can see Timo’s evolution as an artist and photographer. Moving from quiet admiration of nature’s magnificent landscapes into questioning and analysing the ways and results of human interactions with nature, we can see progression of Timo’s artistic fascination with Earth – and humans’ interaction with it – as his subjects.
