Justin James King: Anything but the land

Posted in Fine Art, Landscape, Photography by linhdy on March 8, 2010

I am a big fan of landscape photography.  Photographer Justin James King gives us a new perspective of how we experience & connect with the land.  In his series And Still We Gather With Infinite Momentum, he photographs tourists as they experience the landscape– except the landscape is no where to be seen.  We’re left looking at our own experience.

Statement from King himself:

All we see when we stand in front of the landscape are archetypes: preconceived notions and pre-experienced views. Landscape is a manifestation of culture. Our perception grows out of how we have seen the landscape represented and how it has been delivered to us historically and in popular culture.
