This month the spotlight falls on Sandra Bartocha, a young German photographer who specialises in natural landscapes and plants. Sandra aims to create images that evoke an emotional response, focusing on details, light, colours and moods, using creative camera techniques to capture the beauty of a scene. Sandra has found inspiration across Europe in the plants and landscapes of Germany, Italy and most recently the Nordic countries.
