An alternative look at the landscapes of death, re-birth, decay, starkness, preparation for renewal, sleep, dark, piercing angle of light, rain, mist, dusk… are all intriguing elements that draw one in to a location.
We will examine and discuss the range of possibilities that landscape photography encompasses, discussing examples of other art photographers, filmmakers.
