German Landscapes Through the Lens of a Young Artist with @obimann
On first glance, the landscape photography of Jannik Obenhoff (@obimann) looks like it belongs to a professionally trained artist—not a ninth grader who divides the rest of his after-school time between soccer and guitar. But if you ask the 14-year-old from Munich, Germany, his age is part of what makes his work so special.
“In my opinion, teen photographers share a different perspective of the world,” he says.
Jannik began exploring photography as a hobby for the first time last year, and starting an Instagram account came hand-in-hand with learning the craft. He wanted to find and get feedback from other young photographers who explored similar themes in their art.
“My favorite kinds of photos to take are landscapes: a lake in the mountains with a beautiful reflection and some fog,” he says. “I always say: ‘If you won’t go out and explore, you won’t see how beautiful nature can be.’”
Designer tip: Don’t forget to paint the ceiling. The “fifth wall” of a home, painting it can add additional depth and interest. It can be as simple as a subtly tinted white, or a defining splash of color. Find color inspiration.
