Snowy winters can be bright with a canvas of fresh white all around us, but it can also bring pitch-black gloom and somber feelings. Trying to capture this innate juxtaposition of the fourth of our seasons, AlohaFred used a special technique called black-and-white infrared photography to combine both aspects in a single shot.
Born in Brussels (°81) but raised in South-Africa, this young artist discovered photography on a one year-long stay in Hawaii. After returning to Belgium to finish his master's degree in management, this autodidact just couldn't let his unbridled passion for photography be left by the wayside. Most of what he's learned by now happened as a natural and self-taught progression through books, forums, blogs and vast experience.
AlohaFred is passionate about surfing, traveling, new encounters of all kinds, getting lost in unknown surroundings and people with an enthusiasm for work well executed and with an original touch. He gets electrified by the little things in life, the ones that make it all the more interesting and surprising on a daily basis.
