Kilian Schoenberger is one of the finest contemporary landscape photographers.
He recently went on a mission to find as many hidden places on earth that resembles the settings of “The Tales of the Brothers Grimm.” He scoured most of Middle Europe just to find those perfect spots imbued with a sense of mystery and unseen power. His task, by no means an easy itself, is made even more challenging by the fact that Kilian is actually colorblind. He has deuteranopia, a condition wherein the colors green and red are indistinguishable.
When asked about his creative process, he said: “Others are doing yoga – I am ascending mountains in the darkness of the night. Immersing in my own tranquil world step by step. The stoic rhythm of hiking through the gloom – the gently looming dawn and finally the satisfying moment when I reach my final location.“
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
