生活在城市的人类很难直白的看见自然剧变,通常大家仅能通过温度和空气质量间接的感受到自然环境恶化。西班牙马德里摄影师Daniel Beltrá捕捉了让人震撼的美丽自然画面,通过Beltrá的作品,我们看到一个脆弱且反复无常的生态系统。他擅长从空中拍摄大画幅作品,俯瞰的视角能让观者从更广的范围欣赏到大地的结构。“航拍作品更能强调地球及其所提供的资源是有限的。”这些摄影作品看起来美丽,但却是残酷的真相。

“生态系统的脆弱状态是贯穿我作品始末的一条主线。是自然的美和错综复杂让我获得了灵感。我拍摄的图片展现了在地球在人类所制造的重压之下所发生的改变。高空拍摄是捕捉这类景象最佳的拍摄方式,它使我能够更容易的将自然和人类非可持续发展带来的破坏并置到一幅图片中,并能从一个独特的视角强调地球和以及地球的资源是有限的。我希望我的作品能将人们带到那些人类行为和自然相悖的遥远之地,逐渐使人们意识到我们强加给地球的这种危险的平衡。”

在过去的20年中,摄影工作让Beltrá访遍了七大洲,其中包含了在巴西的亚马逊热带雨林、北极、南大洋以及巴塔哥尼亚冰原等地的远征探险。他从自然的多样性中获取灵感,这让他的作品既触目惊心却又拥有极致的美好。作为一名自然摄影师,Beltrá希望他的照片能让人更深刻的理解和欣赏我们所在的星球。

Water in Iceland's Ölfusá River flows around sandbars towards the Atlantic Ocean, July 7th 2014. The Ölfusá is Iceland's largest river and its watershed drains 6100 square kilometers or 1/7th of Iceland, including the Langjökull glacier. According to a recent study by the University of Arizona to be published in Geophysical Research Letters, parts of Iceland are rising as much as 35mm per year; this is directly related to the melting of Iceland's glaciers and to global warming.
