Kagetsu Buic

Kagetsu Buic is a Melbourne based fine-art landscape/adventure photographer, finding inspiration across the globe. Born in Darwin, Australia he was driven to be creative by his parents in both artistic and technological pursuits. He has a degree in mechanical engineering, and has a passion for mathematics and sciences and how they apply to humanity and the environment. He also has a deep love of the solitude of nature, and the impact we as humans have on the world, and the impact the world has on us.
His works often feature natural vistas presented as large format prints, which allows his works to be viewed with some of the enormity and detail of the landscape, but also features a journalistic impression when combined with human influence on a scene. Buic’s work is often from remote and challenging locations where he is able to find untouched natural landscapes that he can capture to share such scenes and the stories within with his audience. Such places have included Antarctica, Spitsbergen Norway, and the Atacama desert. Kagetsu’s passion for nature has been influenced by such people as Ansel Adams and David Attenborough, with a wish to preserve not only the nature of a place but it's history too.

"Sometimes it's just about enveloping myself in the story or nature of a location, and waiting for the photograph to happen... though sometimes it doesn't. At other times it could be a view from outside my window where I stop for the night. I love that so much time and physical exhaustion (not to mention money) can be spent preparing for a single photograph, for it to boil down to 1/400th of a second of time."

Kagetsu is someone who has dedicated himself to the process of creating each photograph from start to finish. From colour accuracy to printing, all are completed by him personally with not step outsourced (except framing and paper-making).
