Mats Reslow is a photographer living in Sweden in the countryside outside the city of Malmö. He has been creating mostly abstract paintings all his life but now the last couple of years he found a passion for photography.
In his photography, his main field of interest is minimal landscape photography in the nordic countries.
“As I live in a rural part of Skåne most of my landscape photos are taken in Skåne and Denmark, but I like to travel and photograph also in Scotland, Iceland, The Faroe Islands. To obtain a minimalistic image, I often work with long-exposure to smooth moving elements like clouds and water”.
“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.” Hermann Hesse
“The old man knew he was going far out and he left the smell of the land behind and rowed out into the clean early morning smell of the ocean.” Ernest Hemingway
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient.” Margaret Atwood
