Romanticism

2012 - 2017

The vantage point of a moving car leaves the composition void of the still contemplation captured by the traditional romantic landscapes of art history, yet depicts a different sort of more abstracted beauty.

 

Most of these photos were taken while I was working as a small group adventure camping tour guide. All of the shots were exposed to medium format film with a toy camera that was held together with gaffer tape in an effort to prevent light leaks, which often occurred regardless due to the plastic camera body becoming warped by mid-summer Mojave Desert heat.
