Vacation photos are not all equal. The casual snapshot cannot compare to a professional photographer’s considered capturing of their travels. Photographer Alessandro Puccinelli purchased a motorhome to travel along the south coast of Portugal and documented his experience. The resulting images are stunning evidence of his adventures.
The series titled ‘A Van in the Sea’ shows his traveling vehicle dwarfed by the landscape. These nighttime photographs were all taken as he parked for the evening before going to sleep.
The starlight, the moon glow and the drift of the expansive clouds are in direct contrast to the small light from the van itself. The series captures one of the most powerful lessons of traveling through wild places— that our manufactured world is much smaller than the great big universe of possibilities.
