Olivia Kanter

As a photographer, I am captivated by the power of nature to evoke a sense of nostalgia and timelessness. Through my lens, I aim to capture the beauty and feelings of each corner of the world.

For me, photography is not simply about capturing a moment in time, but about capturing the essence of a place and the emotions it evokes. My work is heavily influenced by the concept of nostalgia for a time that allowed for more freedom and vulnerability than we live in today.

I am drawn to landscapes that have a sense of immortality. These places offer a glimpse into a world that has existed, changed, and will continue to exist long after we are gone.

“corners” is an ongoing photo series of black and white images across the American landscape. Heavily inspired by road trip culture of the early twentieth century, I explore these places with the intention to capture the essence left behind by past guests. My images serve as an escape from reality for individuals who have been longing for a time much different than today.
