Magical Water

Photographs by Rafael Rojas

Majestic and silent landscapes - one can but bow down before such beauty. Rafael Rojas remains absolutely still waiting for the right moment to capture this state of grace. He wanders the globe with his tripod on his shoulder searching for times and places to mark his fascination with Nature, showing us that magic is everywhere. He also tries to make people aware how necessary it is to preserve our environment.

Through some twenty large format photographs, Rafael Rojas draws us into his universe. We feel the power of water, the blowing of the wind and the noise of the waves. Icy landscapes, green Icelandic waterfalls, an evanescent Matterhorn, gleaming Scottish trees… all in a spare, uncluttered style revealing the movement of the water and its various textures.

The exhibition was to discover in the Hall of Coats-of-Arms from 24 January to 14 April 2013
