About

THE ARTIST

Rafael Rojas (Master Hasselblad 2014)  is a fine art photographer, whose work frequently focuses on concepts like time, decay and renewal, the interaction between humans and nature and its consequence in the natural balance, the raw latent energy found in the landscape and the ephemeral qualities of existence.

He strives to encapsulate concept, emotion and spirituality in his work.
