Captured in Iceland by Hungarian photographer based in London Balint Alovits, “Acclimate» offers us an immersion in arid zones basically unsuitable for human life. Icelanders have adapted to natural conditions though, by adding animation, colours and sharp contrasts to landscapes offering the viewers an impression of surrealism.
“The series aims to represent how humankind adapts to extreme natural conditions by shaping its habitat and how human-made objects redefine raw nature while interacting with it. Through foreign eyes, the location of the works can recall alien landscapes where the magnitude of nature is unquestionable», he explains.
Indeed, this photographic project with striking and minimalist aesthetics gives us to discover almost lunar landscapes where the coexistence of nature and humanity is peaceful. A great way to question our ability to adapt. More of his work on his Instagram account.
