Within the Landscape - Art Respecting Life

Dr. Roberta Bondar

What is it that lies within a landscape photograph that makes it appealing to artist and observer? The image simplifies the world around us through the use of line, texture, and colour. A myriad of life forms and the physical elements of planet earth comprise these patterns that we view at a distance. As we learn about the natural environment and develop respect for the complexity of our planet, we become better human beings and artists.
