Vanishing Landscapes

Vaucottes

Landscape can provide a healing element, and the gulf between nature and civilisation that has been exacerbated by industrialization becomes bearable…

Landscape becomes the window of our relationship with reality, images of landscape becoming a reflection on ourselves…

When photographs reproduce a landscape, they show us what is different about it, what separates it from us, divorcing it from its setting in order to allow us to experience it, and it is our task to overcome this divide.
