Dan Isaac Wallin is an unusual instant art photographer. His passion is nature and he stays out in the nature for weeks, meditating and observing the surrounding landscape. When the composition comes alive, in that moment of exposure, something larger appears, something beyond the relationship between perspective, camera and subject. To Dan, photography is a process, an artistic, technical and craftsmanlike expedition.
Dan is based in Gothenburg where he has his studio. He has published three photography books, and his work is exhibited in galleries in Sweden and internationally.
The slowly shifting scenarios in a landscape have always fascinated me: it is pure meditation to be outdoors, remaining in the same place, simply focusing for long periods of time on the horizon and scenery. Our sight is fixed but the view is constantly changing. I love that feeling and try to translate it into photography.
The photos Dan presents with us are all taken in Baja California Sur, Mexico, from the same mountain peak. Dan hiked up with his camera and Polaroid films to watch the mighty Pacific Ocean and photograph it daily for a couple of months between 2016 and 2018. No day was like another, and it is shown on the pictures, which transmit tranquility and a subtle power of nature, which Dan loves so much.
Los escenarios que cambian lentamente en un paisaje siempre me han fascinado:Es pura meditación estar al aire libre, permanecer en el mismo lugar, simplemente concentrarse por largos períodos de tiempo en el horizonte y el paisaje. Nuestra vista es fija pero la vista cambia constantemente. Me encanta ese sentimiento y trato de traducirlo en fotografía.
