In starting this ongoing series of landscape photographs I had no interest in any traditional notions of landscape photography. I wanted to photograph landscapes more abstractly as a context for considering the importance of open natural spaces and my concern for the increasing diminishment of those spaces due to resource extraction and the expediency of profit focused development. Best suited to that abstraction I’ve tried to emulate a style reminiscent of 19th century impressionism through the use of a pinhole camera. With this technique I'm hoping to capture the essence rather than the strict fidelity of the landscapes being photographed. This style works best for the intention to effectively erase the destruction most of these natural settings have undergone, blending the scene by dragging the exposure. I’m proposing a liminal space existing somewhere between the literal and the imagined to portray a kind of aspirational fiction. A layer over which we might re-imagine our natural surroundings already littered and obstructed through wholesale development. A new landscape, one of possibility and redemption.
