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)
Parco Agricolo Sud Milano. Rites of passage #12
I'm closing the series here, just to avoid the peril to go on indefinitely. I suppose that almost any reader of the blog had its ratio of greeneries. Going to urban for a few time. But on closing let me cite this short extract from the book "everydayamerica. cultural landscape studies after j. b. jackson" (lower case as in the book cover), page 86 "LANDSCAPE AS DOCUMENT": "In sum, landscape is a historic document that tells a story -- actually multiple stories -- about the people who created the landscape and the cultural context in which that landscape was embedded. ... The ordinary landscape is, after all, the only lasting record written by the overwhelming majority of the earth's population ... The landscape created by ordinary people is the main historic record they leave behind -- records written on the face of the earth."
