Broken Nature

  • Prize
    Silver in Nature/Water
  • Photographer
    Frank Lynch

The Rio Tinto in Andalucia, Spain is red in colour due to the
intense mining activity in the region. It’s waters are highly acidic
as a result of pollution from heavy metals such as iron and copper
as well as sulphur dioxide emissions. It is a bizarre landscape –
grotesque but in a perverse way also quite beautiful.

Frank Lynch grew up in Dublin, Ireland and currently lives in Brig, Switzerland. He earns his living as a graphic artist and finds that taking photographs acts as a counterweight to the stress and pressures of the graphics business . . .
