In this series of landscape photographs, I use a base archive to create “new landscapes” I want to take something that already exists and recreate it into something layered and complex and combine two landscape images by weaving them to arrive at a new image.
I am trying to step away from the clichéd ‘pretty’ landscape images we see in calendars and coffee table books. The process of creating a new landscape by weaving two images together, transforms the landscape into something new, more modern and dynamic.
By taking the ‘old’ processes of film, I am also transforming them to comply with the current digital era. By scanning the negatives in and printing digitally, this hybrid; when produced into a weaved image, comments on this shift in technology as the squares replicate pixels but not the grainy facade of a standard film print.
