Lars Ranek

There’s something about light and its meaning to European photographers that I’m only starting to understand. Here in Australia I’m awash in harsh bright tropical light that I take for granted but in places like Denmark light is celebrated during long summer twilights and remembered in candlelit rituals in dark winters. Danish photographer Lars Ranek captures light so beautifully. In simple rooms, with simple compositions his work encapsulates the soft white northern light and shares the Scandinavian way of life. Visit his artwork portfolio while you’re at his website and don’t miss the food as well. (Sometimes I think I obsess over food photography as much as shots of beautiful rooms.)

Jo, I can not express how much I love the firts photo,the light, the colours and the cheesy tabletop, I do not like too serious rooms and the cheesy touch to me is always a happy touch.

I am with Karina on that first photo. I love the colours and it’s just totally adorable.
