Isabella Tabacchi is a Bologna, Italy-based landscape photographer who draws inspiration from nature’s forces to formidably capture powerful scenarios. Last summer, Tabacchi traveled to the Kamchatka peninsula – a land in the far east of Russia where the four elements and life combine to compose impressive views – and, as result, she created this breathtaking series.
My purpose was to discover a natural scenery that, except for some little towns and the city Petropavlovsk-Kamčatskij, is totally made of pristine nature, forests and huge volcanoes. The nature of Kamchatka is still mostly unknown, it’s really dangerous and it changes continuously, so I explored the peninsula with the help of two local guides. The thing that impressed me the most is the contrast between the colors of life, of the trees, the flowers, the forests and the shades of death, of the volcanoes, of the ash. This series tells also about the strange natural phenomena and elements that can be found in the exploration of this land.Isabella Tabacchi
