Today, we’re featuring some incredible landscapes from German photographer Frank Lassak. With a variety of film stocks, Frank captured the uniqueness and beauty of the North Yorkshire coast in England. Here is a little bit from Frank about the series…

When you visit places that play with your senses.

The landscape along the North Yorkshire coast is magical. Not only does it present itself with a great color palette, it also surprises with lush nature, sometimes rough weather, and exceptionally beautiful architecture. Such as the pier in Saltburn, which instantly transformed me into Being Wes Anderson. Or the eerie ruins of Whitby Abbey, a 7th century Christian monastery. It became famous in fiction with Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula (1897), as where the blood thirsty count came ashore.

The longer I walked on the Cleveland Way, a hiking trail that in part runs along the coast between Saltburn and Scarborough, the more the environment inspired me to record the landscape in a special way: What if my visual, aural, and olfactory perceptions told me a slightly different story of all those places I visited? Didn’t the special kind of grass that lined the footpath above the cliffs remind me of Donald Trump’s hair? Wasn’t the air above the bay at Saltburn smelling like all that I had ever wanted to smell? There were so many sensual perceptions, I couldn’t count them all.

In the end, all works of this series were given titles to illustrate that particular idea and vision coming to my mind when I visited those places. Maybe it will transcend to you, the viewers.
