Comments & reflections on Romanticism and how it shapes how we think about landscape and nature. Photographs from places, infused by memories & myths.
We have always questioned what our position was in our environment. Romanticism (late 18th beginning 19th century) was a reaction to Classicism and its emphasis on logic, rationalism and scientific approach. Romanticism was about emotion and intuition and that could be found in the wilderness of nature.
In 21st century, we're having a similar evolution in which we flee the 'rational, economic, man-made world and glorify the wilderness and nature again.
