Based in Gent, Belgium, Catherine Lemblé is a 27-year-old photographer working part-time to pay her photographic travels & projects. She has a degree in Photography and is currently working on a first book. She likes to evoke the harmony in the mountains and solitary landscapes, as shown in her series Arctic Silence.
Her ongoing series Arctic Silence takes place in Spitsbergen, Norway, one of the world’s northernmost settlements. Her photographs are a testimony of the sublime spectacle of the North. On the other hand, they convey the fragility of this environment because of global warming effect, since it is specially apparent at this place.
”My camera and I have crossed many a mountain and solitary landscape yet this place looked nor felt like anything I had seen before. The great white vastness took me by surprise as I spent my days hiking in the snow. There aren’t any trees standing in Spitsbergen; the cold only permits this eternal naked landscape covered in white pillow-like mountains. I never felt happier hearing nothing but the cracking of snow underneath my feet”.
