Wood, Rocks and Water. The three classic themes of Romanticism. 60x75cm prints from the Lyrical Ballads.
The 'Lyrical Ballads' are comments & reflections on Romanticism and how it shapes how we think about landscape and nature. Landscape photography, infused by memories & myths.
We have always questioned what our position in relation to our environment. Romanticism (starts late 18th, beginning 19th century) was a reaction to Classicism and its emphasis on logic, rationalism and scientific approach. Romanticism was about subjectivity, emotion and intuition and artists and poets looked at nature and wilderness as the perfect example of that.
In 21st century, we're having a similar evolution in which we flee the 'rational, economic, man-made world and glorify wilderness and nature again. At the same time, we are rapidly destroying what is left of this wilderness and nature. So while it's still there, let's celebrate it.
