Moving on from Graham: Evoking meaning

So I know that the realist approach won’t work for me but rather than deliberate anymore I reviewed some of my Landscape of Disability images and attempted new visual statements that were more personal. As you can see I have created a monochrome set of both intimate and more traditional landscapes and stripped out some of the image to evoke a sense of dislocation and alienation between the viewer and the vista.

I like this set. I think they evoke very different values to my original landscape images that were monochrome/straight and do indeed raised questions about the nature of the subject matter and of the art. The style reminded me of Michka Henner’s Less Americans where she appropriates and references Robert Frank’s photobook, The Americans (link). But, and it’s a big but, the my images remove items and the point I am trying to get across is about socially constructed barriers – ie additions.
