The landscape as a subject is so much more than a visual experience, and draws upon many different discourses and ideas from philosophy, psychology, politics & environmentalism. Theories rooted in these diverse areas, along with the complex intersections of power structures and privilege, are the primary focus of Anthropos. The effects of humanity’s actions on the landscape are often not taken into account when we interact within them; Anthropos explores the landscape around us as an intersection of the human and non-human. The images are taken within a small wedge of Dumfries and Galloway in Southwest Scotland, within the restricted circumstances of the first four months of 2021, and return the gaze of my camera towards my home and, ultimately, myself.
