Frederik van den Berg (NL/DE), born 1986 in Hong Kong, focuses on landscapes, faraway lands, and stories of wanderlust. At the ripe age of 8 months old he was relocated for the first time, from Hong Kong to Shrewsbury. Since then he has been moving from one stop to the next. Having grown up in Switzerland, he keeps returning when another episode abroad comes to an end.
He uses the camera to explore his surroundings, and to justify the occasional foray into a risky situation. As Bertrand Piccard once said, “An adventure is a crisis you choose to accept. A crisis is an adventure you choose not to accept.”
