Mother Earth Aqua
Renowned international fashion photographer, Anthony Horth explores beauty beyond the material as he captures the world’s landscapes with his photo series, Mother Earth Aqua.
This work captures Mother Earth and her waterways. The show includes images from remote regions in Australia, Brazilian waterfalls and the birthplace of the Amazon river in Peru. His work reminds us of the fragility of our planets rivers and the powerful beauty of these vital waterways.
Images in the show include “King Georges Falls” from Australia. These falls in the remote Kimberley region of Australia are inaccessible by vehicle. Horth’s image captures the power of the King George river roaring over ancient sandstone cliffs.
His photograph titled “Birth of the Amazon” takes us to the stillness of the Mantaro river in Peru, a river now considered to possibly be the source of the Amazon.
“My goal and satisfaction in life is to take you there, on a journey to the remote and revered places, to stand in my footprints at the exact place where I stood, for you to discover the magic of that moment.”
About the Artist
Anthony Horth is an Australian photographer from Sydney, Australia. He has spent the last 40 years of his life traveling the globe working as a fashion photographer. Horth left the world of fashion behind to pursue nature photography when his interest in conservation and disappearing landscapes peaked. Since then, Horth’s appreciation of the Earth’s natural beauty and the fragility of her disappearing landscapes has inspired him to celebrate unique regions of the world through landscape photography. He believes that his photographs are a means of conservation in themselves – to immortalize the landscape through photography as well as help its preservation through exposure.
He is also the owner of the Anthony Horth Gallery at 156 Wooster Street in Soho, NYC. The Anthony Horth Gallery features the photography of Anthony Horth and other guest artists focused on conservation issues.
