Landscape is an event created/discovered in abstract; we make an action and define it as found in nature. Consider the balance of colour, form, texture, the beautiful, the tragic, the boundless, what is surreal, what is construct; it is what surrounds us—the idea of landscape is inevitable like a universal right. We plant the seed of civilization in our wilderness and put a fence around it.

Put a frame around it; choice makes meaning where it finds it.

Photograph records a frame.
Our palette is a choice of manipulation;
colour manifests in our science of technology and we
evolve to make real the mechanik of vision production.
The camera/photograph creates the illusion of sight.
Within the moment we not only record the art of landscape,
we project the act of landscape, from within the frame
into what surrounds us. As if we had never seen it before.
