Nature Photographer Gregor Schöpf shoots Nature through the lens of Japanese aesthetic sensibility Wabi-Sabi.
Wabi-Sabi (侘寂) characterizes Impermanence as beautiful.
Beauty in Simplicity.
Beauty in Ephemerality and Decay.
By aestheticizing Impermanence, Gregor's Photography is a visual Metaphor for finding peace with Death and Decay.
Simple observation of nature can impart wisdom on the subject of death.
Death is a natural and necessary part of the human condition. Facing death alone is a universal part of the human condition.
The 侘寂 Wabi-Sabi Nature Photography Motifs are intended to convey this message - of coming to terms with death - through the medium of art.
Imagery that evokes the distinct essence of one of four temperate seasons.
Image composition that is spontaneous and open to imperfection.
The use of negative space in composition and 16:9/21:9 aspect ratio in format.
The focus on object details and surface characteristics.
The choice of minor natural flora subjects and light effects.
Wood-framed matte photographic Prints from 侘寂 Wabi-Sabi Nature Photography are part of the Japandi Interior Design style.
Japandi is a fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian design, with an emphasis on Minimalism, Nature, Authenticity and Craftsmanship.
