Abstract

The landscape has been a source of artistic exploration and contemplation since the earliest cave drawings. Represented in paintings and photography as well as film and the tourist's snapshot, a variety of perspectives have all contributed to building within our collective imagination a sense of the places one inhabits and visits, potentially sparking our awe and imagination. An informed artist can remind us of how our perceptions are constructed and thus cast new light on the debates that arise over the meaning and value of particular landscapes and the importance of protecting them. A digital version of the historic image was inserted within the contemporary photograph, asking the viewer to consider the changes that have happened over time, not only in the land but in our perception of it.
