Photographer Captures the Meaning of Alone Time

Dino Kužnik is a graphic designer by day and photographer by night. Experienced as a journalistic photographer and retoucher, he documents American landscapes, capturing what looks like empty scenes taken out of a vintage feature film.

“I usually go on solo road trips and totally disconnect from my life in New York,” said the New York-based photographer and graphic designer in and interview with Gobe Magazine. “But this is something that has an amazingly therapeutic effect on me. The solitude and immersion into the environment focus my mind and I become really observant. I just feel this authentic connection.”

“Nothing is superficial, pollical or fake,” he stressed. “I like to think that my photos are the projection of my inner peace and the state of mind that I am at the time of making them. The photos aren’t just an observation of my surroundings, they are also a projection of self. There is a lot of me in there. So in short, what I most love is the process.”

With more than 30 thousand followers on Instagram, it’s only a matter of time till Kužnik realizes his dream and becomes a full-time photographer. And the meantime, follow his work on Instagram.
