The secret beauty of the forgotten land
This is a series of photographs born from my desire to explore landscapes from all around the world that have been forgotten. It's a project that celebrates the beauty of landscape through the concept of the sublime. Through an observational study of texture, colour and form, this project investigates how these properties appeal directly to the emotions of the viewer. Understanding the subject's historical context by means of drawing together influences from 18th century landscape paintings and blending this with knowledge of contemporary approaches to the subject, this series of work encourages us to question our individual ideas of beauty and invokes a strong emotional response within the viewer.
