“With the camera, I get the opportunity to catch and preserve special moments and the beauty of nature.”
– Dagmar Schelske

Nature comes in all shapes and sizes, on all continents and in all climates. It’s powerful, it’s vulnerable, it’s all around us – and this is something we don’t celebrate enough.

In Nature’s Diversities, our Mission with Deutsche Welle’s Global Ideas program, we looked for shots that show off mother nature’s work. Congratulations to the overall winner, Dagmar Schelske, who was interviewed and published on Deutsche Welle!
