A blog about my landscape image making. On landscape imaging in general, bits of history and related disciplines (Architecture, Geography, Neuro Science, Philosophy and whatever happens to get my attention)
If we assume the hypothesis that each photo is made from an initial subjective view, an assumption not completely innocent, we get rapidly to the point where one of the main questions is "why did she/he take this ?". The relation between the photographer and what and how he is looking at something that gets represented in the photo is immediately questioned. Perhaps it has to do with the way in which we reconstruct, from a picture, the equivalence among us, the viewer, and the photographer.
It is enough to have a quick look at the history of photography to see that the way in which a photographer approaches and chooses his photographic subject represents a point where major distinctions could be made.
