I’ve spent much of this foray on the extreme opposite sides of the spectrum. I felt challenged to create something extraordinary, as if embodying the spirit of New Topographics. That creation didn’t quite land well, and I became uninspired and defeated. What I carried in initiative was suppressed by my lack of direction and adherence to basic tenets of the genre. Landscape: Reimagined melds the two extremes, the capture of nature in embodiment of landscape photography with the wildly detracted and abstracted interpretation of the genre’s mores. This personal series hopes to find the common ground between traditional principles and creative innovation.
