In his atmospheric works, Daniel Reiter reveals the absolute beauty of cloudy mountain peaks and rolling ocean waves. Each photograph has a sensual approach and calls forth a feeling of immense freedom. We are presented with the many wondrous moods of nature.

Herkules

Named after a winter storm that produced huge waves off the Moroccan coast, the Herkules series combines the contemplative tranquility and thunderous energy of the Atlantic. In these timeless seascapes, the natural power of the elements is laid bare; distant traces of civilization let us observe the photographs in an almost meditative state. The power of the ocean washes over us with the breaking waves.

These intoxicating images of the sea were shot along the shore of Tamraght, a coastal town in Morocco that has become a surfer’s paradise – a familiar theme in Reiter’s work. Whether it is as a physical challenge or a source of calm and place to reflect on the fundamentals of life, the open ocean has always had a magical effect on people. Reiter captures this fascination in remarkable, minimalistic photographs. We become caught up in the blue water and the peaceful sky on the horizon. Here, the sea symbolizes both freedom and eternity.

Mountain Waves

For his Bergwellen (literally “Mountain Waves” in English) series, Daniel Reiter flew in a single-engine Cessna over the Harz Mountains in Germany. There, he succeeded in capturing a similar atmosphere to the one in his contemplative ocean pictures. Reiter transfers this mood into the mountain landscape, likening the rolling scenery to gentle waves that rise into the kingdom of the clouds. Like the Herkules series, the color blue is on display in all its many nuances. From pastels to sky blue, the color’s full power is revealed. The line between earth and the sky is no longer clearly defined and blurs into the scenery. Among the many layers of blue, we can get lost in a dream.

“When you board an airplane in the morning, roll onto the runway, and then slowly climb higher and higher, it is an unbelievable feeling of freedom,” Daniel Reiter says. It is no wonder aerial photography is one of his greatest passions. Looking at these painterly works, you can feel the same fascination as the photographer at the moment of creation. In the artist’s own words: “We look out into the distance and let our thoughts roam free.”
