The Lens of Place

Carson Hart

The Lens of Place reevaluates landscape photography through the deconstruction of individual locations. Removed from the persistent format of the rectangle, landscapes are re-presented in a circular arrangement juxtaposed against hundreds of other scenes. The panorama display encourages the viewer to walk along a collection of images, examining the many details, while also giving the ability to step away to view the more extensive, invented landscape. The photographs as a whole are meant to celebrate the natural environment and encourage the spontaneity of exploration.
