Emptyland by Jaume Montserrat

EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 1 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 2 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 3 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 4 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 5 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 6 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 7 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 8 EMPTYLAND BY JAUME MONTSERRAT 9

Such beautiful illustrations. These are created by the Barcelona-based illustrator Jaume Montserrat, who’s passionate with nature, society and traveling. He draws trying to bend those three worlds.

Jaume found inspiration for his project ‘Emptyland’, when flying home from South America to Spain. He fell asleep and imagined waking up on an island where he lives for 29 days with other animals.

He explains: “On this island, there was only one animal from each specimen (kind of like Noah’s Ark). All of them were empty, asexual and immortal. They didn’t need to hunt, nor were they scared of being hunted – so there was a perfect symbiosis.”

He and the wildlife lived free from worries in this dream, and that empty paradise is what sparked these images.

This series is called “Translations”. It’s made by Belgian-born photographer Sofie Knijff, who has spent the last three years traveling the world making portraits of children and asking them one question: what do you want to be when you grow up? With limitless imagination the children answer, dressing up as their future selves.

Knijff captures her young subjects in countries like South Africa, India, Mali, and Greenland, and notes that the different environments naturally influenced a child’s dream job. Among the places she visited, an interesting comparison fell between Kulusuk, a village in Greenland that is currently in the midst of rapid climate change, and the desert lands of the African country Mali, where she focused on Touareg children. Both are remote areas with their own set of socio-economic hardships and extreme environmental conditions – and in both places, life is truly about surviving. In Greenland, children dressed up as hunters. In Mali, children dressed up as a marabout or a doctor – which is especially interesting considering that Mali has one of the largest infant death rates in the world. Whatever the place or dream, what draws the children together is the hope they all feel for their future.
