They look for is the second pitch by photographer Stijn Van der Linden. When he visited Corcovado and other national parks in Costa Rica years ago, he noticed how other visitors were mainly interested in spotting animals. They let the immense diversity of the plant kingdom pass them by, while just that blew Van der Linden away.

Especially in the seemingly endless variety of tree species, he got lost. He did so again several years later when he was editing the photos from his trip and trying to create order in his images of natural beauty. They look for’ forms an extension of his trip and is an ambitious attempt to turn his experiences of Costa Rica’s greenery into an atmospheric visual story.
