Nordic landscapes, undiscovered spots, deserted places, and wild nature are the main subjects of my photographs. I find tranquility in mountains, the ocean, fjords, national parks, lava fields, and in rough nature in general, so for me, it comes naturally to immortalize these unusual forms in my work.

About the Artist

"All the places I have been to, the people I have met, and the landscapes that took my breath away shaped me in some way; appreciating the smaller things in life, being more aware of the environment and paying attention to details are just really a few to mention. Over the years, documenting my trips also became a vital part of my life, as I want to immortalize special moments, so they will never fade away."

Dora Kontha is an analogue photographer who specializes in wide open spaces, rough nature, and undiscovered Nordic landscapes. Her work focuses on the form of unreal nature. She creates melancholic and dramatic photographs with traditional film cameras and expired 35mm film in pursuit of feelings of freedom and wanderlust. Dora currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
