Colorful Salinas Look Just Like Impressionist Paintings

David Burdeny is a Canadian photographer living in Vancouver who has always been interested in lagoons. When he saw a salt lake during a flight to San Francisco, he found the subject for his new series. He ended up traveling to Western Australia, Utah’s Great Salt Lake, and the Mojave Desert.

Not only the color attracts attention in Burdeny’s photographs, but the relationship of the different tones with the geometry of the landscape. In fact, geometry, color, and landscapes interact not only in this series but in many other projects of the Canadian photographer. In his work, poetry and landscape communicate as if it were a painting. The effect caused by his photography, not dissimilar to expressionist paintings, is not intentional though. Burdeny that effect was already there, in the landscape, and he only used the experience or colors as an instrument to explore subconscious emotions.
