Largely autodidact, natural born talent Gustav came to his profession by ceaselessly shooting, shooting, shooting. And by reading up on and studying the great names and images of photography. As a result, he has achieved the touch of a classic portrait and landscape photographer before even turning 30. Wiking’s pictures are characterized by visual poetry. His pictures don’t simply tell a story, they go on to inspire daydreams.
Pretty, gritty or in between, his portraits and landscapes reveal a psychological insight into each subject matter. His images go beyond the surface, inspiring thoughts about character, situations and man’s place in life and in the world. We’re in awe of what Gustav has already accomplished and look forward to seeing where he will go.
