"Event Horizon": Sony World Photography Awards Finalist
Kacper Kowalski, a Polish aerial photographer, embarked on a journey in search of harmony during the onset of winter. With a strong desire to explore the limits of rationality, Kowalski took to the skies to capture breathtaking aerial views of frozen bodies of water. Using a gyrocopter or motorised paraglider, Kowalski completed 76 solo flights between January and March, covering an impressive distance of 10,000 kilometers (6,200 miles) and spending 200 hours in the air. His photographs were taken from an altitude of approximately 50-150 metres (165-495 feet) above the bodies of water near Tricity in northern Poland.
It is noteworthy that Kowalski's book, "Event Horizon," has been selected as a finalist in the Sony World Photography Awards competition for 2023. This recognition serves as a testament to Kowalski's exceptional talent and dedication to his craft.
