In my photographic work I like to think about the experience of viewing artwork and how our perceptions and beliefs play a role in that.
This series explores ways to get beyond the photographic still life, calendar shot, botanical documentation, travel photography or the landscape as a backdrop to a fashion editorial. I’ve wondered: is there a way to clear the palate of our busy minds first so that we don’t immediately dismiss the image as “just another picture of a landscape”?
I’ve inserted a blank shape into some of the images that could serve this purpose…other images show that nature, herself, actually has these meditative viewing areas available. The visual order of the landscape seems to provide a clearing of the inner space of the human mind.
