The stark, the beautiful, the lonely, the visible and the invisible, the clear and the hazy. These are some of the keywords in Dorthe Mathiesen’s new photo series ’California Dreaming’. The photos were taken on a road trip in the United States, where Dorthe was taken in by the overwhelming beauty of nature and the endless range of colours.
Man-made vs. naturel
Dorthe has always been fascinated by the meeting between wild nature and man-made design. A meeting that illustrates both our power and our powerlessness in regard to the strong forces of nature. Contrasts are a recurring feature in her photos, as hot meets cold, masculine meets feminine, and beautiful meets stark.
