BEST IDEA EVER Landscape Photography
Coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the Dartmoor National Park, the exhibition of photographs celebrates the spirit of freedom to roam and the experience of beauty in Nature.
Photography is a most elegant medium, which I am passionate about. As an Art photography stirs emotion, as a medium of communication it conveys meaning. As a means of expression it can tell us something about the world, as well as the photographer.
Since the invention of Photography in the 1830’s, the process and technology have changed over the years, yet its principles and ability to fix light onto a surface, remain to this day. Photography has radically transformed the way we represent and interpret the world. The advent of digital photography in the 1990’s has made it ubiquitous and is probably the most democratic medium.
I love Dartmoor, its wide open spaces, its rugged landscape, dramatic rocky outcrops and sweeping sheltered valleys. At first glance this landscape may appear desolate, yet it has been continuously inhabited and managed, since the Mesolithic, when the then upland forests of alder, oak and hazel began to be cleared by hunter gatherer communities, around 10000BC.
My landscape photography is a homage to Nature, the experience of being outdoors, the heritage attached to particular sites, and our own inextricable link to the land.
