The first blackprint edition signed by Eva Iten is a unique perspective over the underwater world in black and white photographs printed on a very special handmade Japanese Awagami washi.
Her series is called “The landscape we lose” and aims to raise awareness about the critical situation of the coral reefs. The photographs show living and dying coral reefs as well as the marine life that depends on them. They reveal a complete ecosystem that can soon be lost.
