If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

English photography: Mark Edwards « Previous | |Next »
February 6, 2012

Mark Edwards' recent landscapes around Bath and in East Anglia, which were made on an 8 x 10 inch field camera, were commissioned to accompany the Gainsborough landscape exhibition that was shown concurrently at the Holburne Museum.

This rather drab landscape subverts the classic postcard view of the city--usually a series of symmetrical golden terraces with hilly gardens and the occasional spire. It is is composed with a Claudean symmetry that viewers will encounter in many of Gainsborough’s pictures. Trees frame the distant city and a scrubby, rocky foreground leads the eye to a dominant middle ground with a misty landscape beyond.
