wildness | NATURE OF PLACE
“I have often photographed when I am not in tune with nature but the photographs look as if I had been. So I conclude that something in nature says, ‘Come and take my photograph.’ So I do, regardless of how I feel.” – Minor White
This is a foundational piece. It has a loose construct that allows exploration of a lifelong fascination for the land, especially woodlands and such like and, how these places are responding post the trace of human activity. These are environments re-wilding where the omnipresent hand of man and their memory lessens to the point we believe man was never there. This is a new nature of place, a reflection of our culture, for an antecedent anthropogenic nature form will not exist again – it can’t, everything now has the permanent indelible trace of man.
