The surreal arrangement of nets and cages in these fish farms out at sea captivated me; the mostly circular enclosures looked like abstract designs. In the future, such aquaculture methods may help to feed the world’s growing population.

In this picture, you can see greenhouses and plastic foils used in the cultivation of fruit and vegetables. The innumerable structures create partially abstract motifs.

I was impressed by the variety of umbrellas at the beach resorts, as well as their overall geometry. This picture is part of a series that won me the first prize in the Travel category in the Professional competition of the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards.

I was particularly interested in the surreal colours and patterns of this open-pit phosphate mine; the water really is the same unnatural green hue depicted in this photograph.

I shot this image from a small airplane with an open door, in sub-zero temperatures – coupled with wind chill. This little clearing in the forest near Germany’s Bavarian alps is shaped like a heart.

This picture shows circle irrigation in the fields of Kansas, USA, a method of irrigation where equipment rotates around a pivot and crops are watered by sprinklers. Our helicopter was flown at maximum altitude for us to see the fields in their entirety.
NEXT: Central Florida, USA →
The patterns and colours of this open-pit phosphate mine in Central Florida, USA, intrigued me. At the same time, the huge, dark basin, edged with golden water, was rather scary-looking.

I created this photograph of a uranium mine through satellite imagery. The richness in detail here fascinates me – looking at the image as a whole with all its patterns, I’m reminded of an abstract painting.
NEXT: Lisse, The Netherlands →
The arrangement of flowers – as well as their diverse colours and patterns – in Keukenhof’s tulip fields is visually interesting. While there is a formal beauty to such industrial cultivation, the picture shows how humans can massively transform a landscape.
NEXT: North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany →
Tagebau Hambach, an open-pit coal mine, is considered the largest man-made hole in Europe. These big machines biting into the soil show the exploitation of our environment, and the barren landscape reminds me of something out of a science-fiction movie.
