New Landscapes

I combine traditional photography and digital technology to create images that speak of fabrication, illusion and truth in photography. Questioning photography’s nature of representation, the images explore the ideas of real versus imaginary, scenic beauty, and the sublime. Oceans get stretched, landmasses change orientation, disturbing the landscape’s passive quality. By expanding and collapsing space, and changing the perception of the real, I create a new experience of a place. I am interested in this construction of impossible lands to speak of fantasy and to challenge the viewer’s beliefs about the existence of these places. By creating these idyllic and unconventional scenes, I search for the true meaning of landscape: a place mysterious and unknown to me.
