Matjaz Krivic | Earth Temples | Maptia

"On my quest to find the world's silent spaces, I was drawn to places of worship and to vast natural spaces..." and so starts Matjaz Krivic's Earth Temples, a gallery of stunning panoramic photographs made almost all over the world, from the Hari Mandir in Amritsar to Christ in Corcovado, Brazil.

It is in these places or spaces that one can sometimes experience absolute and utter silence; a rare commodity in our modern world that is besieged by constant cacophony, noise 'pollution' and the like.

Matjaz's panoramas are rendered justice on MAPTIA; a wonderful storytelling platform for photographers.

Matjaz Krivic is a globe-trotting photographer from Slovenia specializing in capturing the personality of indigenous people and places. He has covered the face of the earth in his intense, personal and aesthetically moving style that has won him several awards. For 20 years, he has made the road his home and most of the time you can find him traveling with his camera somewhere between the Sahara and the Himalayan region.
