Stunning Photos That Capture the Feeling of Silence

Filled with landscapes that would look right at home in a Terrence Malick film, Akos Major’s Still series is the perfect visual antidote to a busy, stress-filled day at work. Gazing at these beautiful, moody images, which he shot at various locations in France, Austria, and Hungary, is almost like stepping into a church or a library; they command an instant, respectful silence from the viewer. Craving a little peace and quiet yourself? Click through to visit a muted, people-free world that’s filled with big, overcast skies, washed-out seascapes, and the occasional pop of lush green foliage, and visit the Vienna-based photographer’s website to check out more of his work.
