Real / Constructed Landscapes

Sheila Jonah, John Drajewicz


Immediately after photography’s birth, it was clothed in an apparently transparent cloak of reality. Despite this appearance, photographers immediately set out to imprint their points of view on a seemingly impartial medium. Simultaneously trading upon photography’s reputation for verité while subverting it with every conceived image, photographers led a modest life of quiet schizophrenia. Come view for yourself the oldest category of photographic reality, the landscape. Separate the real from the constructed, if you can.
