Landscape, like photography, is a modern Ideal

“Landscape like photography is a modern ideal” is an ongoing series investigating the notion of landscape in modern photography.

The series reveals landscape as the reflection of our imaginative engagement with nature, or, in other words, a mirror of our perceptual process.

Inspired by the concept of sublime, the images are a bridge between abstraction and materiality : a lived dream-like state, independent from representation and knowledge.

As emotions come into being in relation to perception, the viewer is invited to engage in a process of feeling to revaluate the connection between the human and the environment in favour of a sustainable approach to life.

Shot between 2017 and 2019, the images have been collected as part of a personal study on holistic nature and reality.
