Woolly Romanticism – Landscapes

January 12, 2010

“The problem with photographing rocks is how to make work that expresses and evokes something more than woolly romanticism. It can be done – rocks as well as city streets have meanings, and important meaning for us” (Badger, 2007).

I have to admit that I am getting more and more into landscape pictures. Landscape photographs embodied for me mostly what is described above as woolly romanticism. I realise that even my confession “to be into landscape pictures” is not free of shame. However, this whole attitude towards this genre is obviously very ignorant and unjust, considering that already many landscape photographers distant themselves from capturing a picturesque idyll.
