Land Matters : Landscape Photography, Culture and Identity, Paperback / softback Book

Land Matters : Landscape Photography, Culture and Identity Paperback / softback


In this major work on landscape photography, extensively illustrated in colour and black & white, Liz Wells is concerned with the ways in which photographers engage with issues about land, its representation and idealisation.

She demonstrates how the visual interpretation of land as landscape reflects and reinforces contemporary political, social and environmental attitudes.

She also asks what is at stake in landscape photography now through placing critical appraisal of key examples of work by photographers working in, for example, the USA, in Europe, Scandinavia and Baltic areas, within broader art historical and political concerns.

This illuminating book will interest readers in photography and media, geography, art history and travel, as well as those concerned with environmental issues.
