The Unseen Sea by Simon Christen

Under - Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography

A collection of time lapses by Simon Christen taken around the San Francisco Bay Area roughly shot over the period of one year.

Simon Christen, grew up in Bern, Switzerland, is a professional animator and an aspiring photographer. Having graduated from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, he has worked at studios like Disney and Pixar (where he is currently an animator).

In the past few years I have developed a passion for photography. It started as just browsing portfolios I admired; wondering how their photos were taken, processed, and treated. Eventually I decided to buy my first DSLR and began to experiment on my own, taking thousands of photos to only be satisfied with very few. Over time I have found my eye in some ways, feeling excited each time I catch something worth sharing.

As humans we have the urge to design everything. Once something becomes forgotten and nature starts claiming it back, a very interesting mix of human design and decay happens. I am fascinated by this mix of intricate shapes, unique patterns and colors.

Photography combines two of my passions; being outdoors and CG. Photography is also the perfect creative balance to animation for me. Animation forces me to study movement in great detail, where as photography focuses on a split second in time.

Below are some selected photographs by Simon Christen:
