Over the summer, Chicago-based travel photographer Ken Koskela spent 17 days in China, where he captured a stunning mix of environmental portraits and awe-inspiring landscapes that highlight the rich beauty and culture of this Asian nation. The artist did a spectacular job of capturing China’s incredible beauty.
As My Modern Met revealed, Koskela presents “both a macro and micro view of China’s countryside, narrowing in from all-encompassing vistas to eye-catching locals in rural villages. Shot with an emphasis on superb light, the photographer’s breathtaking images share the stories of individuals and their surrounding environments in a stunning and evocative way.”
The 17-day trip resulted in a multitude of beautiful images. “This trip to China,” he said, “was the most challenging and photographically rewarding trip to date. Because I was shooting landscapes at sunrise and sunset, as well as portraits in the afternoon, I averaged about 4 hours of sleep a night for 17 days. Needless to say, it took me a couple weeks to recover.”
