Photographer uses platinotype technique to convey the beauty of pristine nature. The series is not dedicated to any particular country or region: one can see here Russian landscapes side by side with exotic views of Nepal and Japan. 

The history of the platinotype technique dates back to over a hundred years ago. Among the masters of photography who used platinum and palladium process are such prominent names as Frederick Evans, Edward Weston, and Irving Penn. It is a laborious photographic process as their signature technique as it demands a lot of patience, special knowledge, and a particular sensitivity to the material. Prints made in this technique aesthetically encompass image colour, depth, and tactile qualities offering a rich and uniquely long tonal range.
