LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
“A landscape image cuts across all political and national boundaries, it transcends the constraints of language and culture.”
– Charlie Waite
Landscape photography represents the way we relate to the places we inhabit. It can also reflect the effect we have on our environment.
Traditionally nature was restricted to the background in portraits and paintings. It was not until the seventeenth century that the anomaly of representing nature purely for itself was introduced.
• Traditional Landscapes – capture the pure existence of nature. Human influence or activity is often not featured. Devoid of human presence the emphasis is placed on landforms, weather phenomena and ambient light.
• Urban Landscapes – focus on the disturbances of landscapes and influence of man-made features have developed, broadening the subject matter of landscape photography to include rural, urban, industrial and natural environments.
We look for high technical quality and landscapes that are fresh, inspiring and challenge our perception of what a landscape is.
