Kweku Asafu-Adjaye Weekly Post 3

This week I bring to you all a set of photographs from a photographer named Mattias Klum. This artist is known for his nature photographs shown in the National Geographic magazine. He shoots his photos to capture the essence of nature. He tends to get either very high and far away from his subjects or super close into what most would call the danger zone.

Klum shoots his photos by taking advantage of the natural light around him. Since he is usually in an unfamiliar environment, he tends to play around with various angles and animal habitats that suite the article he is working with.

To me, his work is kind of boring. It is simply nature photography which isn't super hard or special since I can and currently do the same. The only real reason he seems popular to me is because he started at such an early time of the magazine and at such a young age to get known. Money got his photos to be taken at various angles such as high up in airplanes which isn't that special.

  1. Yeah, I can definitely see what you are saying about his photos being boring. I guess we can say that once he gets to his point that he does know the picture he wants to make.
