Nude Elephant Dust (coloured) | Where Is Adam? | 2020

In the beginning we all lived peacefully together in a place called paradise.


But over time, humans grew further apart from the animals.


In this series I wonder how things could have been if we didn’t leave paradise,


is there still a way to return?


Is there a way to create a new?


Will we find a way?



Note: With this series, I make people more aware that the physical use of animals is not necessary for the final photo or film nowadays.


The model, landscape, and animals(in their natural habitat from a safe distance) are photographed separately and form the elements for each composition. The photographs are united by digital manipulation, usually by many hours/days of hand-drawn digital/painting.



The Where is Adam? series has been awarded Gold at the International Prix De La Photographie Paris (PX3) 2020 in Fine Art/Nude and has received 1st Place in Nude & Figure in the 14th Pollux Awards, and the title of Overall Winner in the 15th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards,  and the series has received a number of other Honorable Mentions and Nominees in International awards.
