Oskar Enander is a world famous ski photographer who never set out to take photos. Born colorblind, Oskar was drawn to the mountains around Engelberg, Switzerland and the lines drawn in the snow by skiers. The contrast between black and white on the snow set the course of Oskar’s life in ski photography. Since his beginnings in the field in 2002, he has won Powder Magazine’s photo of the year award three separate times. Awesome story from DPS Skis.
