In Greek mythology, the god AETHER was ruler of the atmosphere, the privileged user of the higher light blue pure air layers. We mortals are always looking for it, but we are condemned to inhale the most polluted lower air layer of the atmosphere. Is pure air increasingly becoming a privilege for the most deserted places on earth? Tom D. Jones found this Utopia on the beaches of the North Sea. The alchemy of light and air, wind and water led to impressive images with a surreal colour scheme, pure poetry. The pictures were taken with the latest Hasselblad medium format cameras, which have the exceptional quality to reproduce an immense colour depth and detail, which, until recently, has been impossible.
