Macroscape - April 2011
The recent macroscape images are photographs of natural and man-made objects used in combination to create miniature landscapes. The images explore ideas of ambiguity and similarity between small-scale and large-scale phenomena such as mountains, stretches of water, and buildings. In these miniature landscapes, objects transform into rocks on the seashore, or bushes, or glacial structures. The process confers a new existence upon these objects, which are often old or discarded. Another important aspect of these images is the lighting, which is of the same importance to the composition as the objects themselves. This work carries the same ideas as the work with ink in water; here expressed in different ways.
Hope you enjoy them!
