Blog / Imaginary Landscape no. 6

I have created another ‘Imaginary Landscape’. Like the previous ones, it combines photographs from different places (all in Scotland in this case) to create a new scene. This process allows me to mix times, lighting conditions, colours and textures until I have a composition that I like.

My intention is to create the sense of a single place. This is primarily about selecting the right images and cropping them in the right way, but in this case I have added another element to help ‘fuse’ the separate photographs: coloured strips over the joins. These are like pieces of sticky tape, holding the images together. Like the ITV logo, they draw colour from the photographs.

I like the work of Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935), and I am sure that his approach to shape and colour is influencing things here. I have added one of his pictures below.
