NFT #1: "Where the River Meets the Sea"

CC0 NFT - Where the River Meets the Sea

Often inconspicuous from the ground, these beautiful, winding waterways of Iceland offer breathtaking spectacles of colors and textures when viewed from the air. Most rivers have their source at one of the numerous glaciers, and flow towards the sea. Along the way, they transport vital nutrients for the ecosystem in the form of sediment, which results in the often very abstract colors.

About the Artist

I'm a visual artist and fine art photographer from Hamburg, focused on atmospheric and abstract landscape photography of the North: Norway, Iceland, Greenland and beyond.

My approach is all about slow, conscious travel. A truly stunning landscape photo takes patience, especially in the North, with its rugged terrain and highly unpredictable weather.

I was always drawn to the North. Exploring the cold, raw beauty of its landscapes became a form of meditation for me, and photography a way to preserve those fleeting memories. My personal projects are a visual journal; a glimpse into my own imagination. These moments of quiet contemplation are where some of my most distinctive work originates.

What is an NFT?

A non-fungible token ("NFT") is a data unit on a digital ledger called blockchain, where each NFT represents a unique digital object and is therefore non-exchangeable by nature. NFTs can be digital files such as images, video, audio, and other forms of creative work. While digital files themselves are infinitely reproducible, the NFTs that represent them are tracked in the underlying blockchain technology, providing buyers/collectors with proof of ownership for the NFTs.
