An Interview with Claes Thorberntsson by Beata Moore

Heaven by Claes Thorberntsson

Claes Thorberntsson is a professional photographer. He was born and raised in Uddevalla Bohuslän. He bought his first camera in 2009 and since 2015 runs his own full time photographic business since 2015. The proximity and love for the Bohu coast meant that he quickly found his subjects around the rugged cliffs, where the waves often caress the polished slabs. Claes' style depicts what he sees in nature, in a graphically well-thought-out way. He likes strong compositions and to use water to create lines and patterns in an artistic way.

Fascinated by endless ways of editing and sharing on social media, many photographers almost forgotten about the beauty and power of printing.

Selection of January 2023: Watermountain by Julia Redl

Watermountain by Julia Redl

The rocks plunged steeply up to 220 m into the depth. Because of the strong wind, it was almost impossible to get to the edge of the cliff, and I could only see the birds as small black dots through the telephoto lens. While lying down and looking into the depth, I then noticed the white crests of the waves running out on the black beach. At that moment I also had my subject... read more.
