Winter changes the landscape immensely, trees lose colours, animals go into hiding and the grasses are carpeted under layers of icy white snow. The landscape is transformed to one with fewer colours, with black and white, plain chrome is major representation.
It make for some surreal imagry, hence swiss based amatuer photographer Pierre Pellegrini, finds time to document the stillness of the winter in Aldesago, Switzerland in a series of appealing minimalist photos.
Pierre is a self taught photographter who discovered his love for landscapes. The former architectural designer , had to switch career path, ( to a physical education teacher, during which he applied for photography sessions ) to offer him enough time to pursue his passion
“For me, photography represents a wonderful mean to communicate and, at the same time, to give the viewers the chance to feel emotions” he told Ausquerry.
” I am not quite sure if it‘s me who is looking for the themes or if it‘s the themes themselves who are looking for me. Yet, whenever such an encounter happens, a picture arises, perfectly in syntony with myself and with my personality ”
