Mick Otten

Mick has been a photographic designer, freelance photographer and visual artist since 2007. He focuses on nature and city photography and makes autonomous work.
Mick photographs marine animals on the coast, on his weekly diving trips and at home. He turns it into nature art by removing these sea animals from their natural environment: he captures them on a black background to emphasize their eccentric shapes and beautiful colors. Photographing small animals separately from their environment is not very easy underwater, so he collects them to photograph them at home. Then the animals regain their freedom. So they are all photos of living animals.
