Landscape for me is a journey not only through the land but also self. Through my observations on other people’s transience in the landscape as well as their intervention upon it, I feel I am able to portray a realistic interpretation of the landscape before me. In doing so I find out more about myself in the process. By photographing this, I am creating slices of the world around me which my audience and I can later look at for the duration of the photographs’ life.
Recently I have been discovering the immediate landscape around me in order to gain further insight into my local area. Because it is my interpretation of my surroundings, my audience learns something about me and so provides an accompaniment to this Artist’s statement!
I am currently a student with the Open College of Arts and as I progress with my studies I am becoming aware of the importance people and their intervention on the landscape can have to my photography’s meaningfulness.
