Content and form are not as romantic as you might think, when getting down to making work about nature. It’s messy. Ideas get tangled, over-evolved, and you lose your neat camera-eyed perception. Backtracks, cover-ups, false-starts tumble into the day’s progression – I’d forgotten how mixed up you can feel. And landscapes don’t fit the frame you want them to. The hoped-for solution is to find a happy alignment, a switch, a click, when you feel it works.
