风景细节的情感捕捉,美国加利福尼亚,James Watts

美国摄影师詹姆斯•沃茨(James Watts)通过对风景细节的关注,以亲密的情感捕捉到了加州广袤的自然风光。
瓦茨在北加州著名的山脉和湖泊附近长大;“我的童年充满了在荒野中度过的无数个小时,”他解释道。在他还不能走路之前,他就和父母一起背包旅行,这是他在风景摄影方面的早期尝试——尽管他是通过一条曲折的道路才到达今天的位置。他解释道:“2012年,我进行了少年以来的第一次户外旅行。”“一切都不一样了,自然世界对我来说变得充满活力和活力。我带着对自然景观的热情回来了,并探索了表达我对自然景观的体验和观察的方法。瓦茨对他所捕捉到的东西采取一种个人的态度,把镜头对准风景中的一个单一主题;无论是一块石头,一片海藻,还是风吹在沙滩上留下的波纹。通过放大细枝末节,他对自然世界的描绘提供了一种对野性的不同视角——一种独特的他自己的视角。

By focusing on details within the landscape, American photographer James Watts captures the vast nature of the Californian wild with intimate affection.
Watts grew up near the mountains and lakes that northern California is famed for; “my childhood was filled with countless hours spent in the wilderness”, he explains. Backpacking with his parents before he could walk, the scene was set early for his endeavors in landscape photography—though it was via a circuitous path that he arrived where he is today. “In 2012 I went on my first outdoor trip since I was a teenager”, he explains. “Everything was different, the natural world became dynamic and alive to me. I returned with a passion to experience the natural landscape and explore methods of expressing my experiences and observations of it.” Taking a personal approach to what he captures, Watts trains his lens on a single subject within a landscape; be that a stone, a piece of seaweed, or the rippled marks left by wind on sand. By magnifying the minutiae, his renderings of the natural world offer a different perspective on the wilderness—one that is distinctively his own.
