In my practice as a landscape photographer, I am constantly experiencing the internal struggle of having to validate my photography as art with a profound meaning that is more than ‘just a pretty picture’. Early landscape photography depicts nature as a sublime otherness seemingly beyond human reach - a divine divide between us and our natural surroundings. By focussing on the human element in nature, I am questioning the existence of the pristine environment and diverting the viewer’s gaze away from the conventional aesthetics of landscape photography towards the reality of contemporary Australian landscape altered by human impact.
