Oliver Klink travels the world to capture the intricacy and interconnectedness of our ecosystems. The subjects of his photographs range from fine art wildlife to vanishing traditions. The link between his various bodies of work is the increasingly complex modern world constantly unfolding in new and unexpected ways. He captures our cultural changes, the environments we inhabit, and the insights into our world and ourselves. His artistic goal is telling stories with his images and making the viewers dream.
Klink’s work has received many awards, been exhibited in galleries and museum, and published with National Geographic, Days of Japan, Black &White, Popular Photography, among others. In 2014, his image Herding Instinct won the grand prize at Rayko PhotoCenter International Travel contest, and in 2013, his image The Great Migration was selected as the Grand Prize winner at the 30th anniversary SpringShow Exhibit at the PhotoCentral Gallery in Hayward, CA. Other awards have included the Mike Ivanitsky award (2009) for photographic excellence, nomination at the prestigious Color Spider Award (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015), PX3 contest in Paris (2012) and the North America Nature Photographer Association Top 100 wildlife images (2008, 2009).
