      Landscape PhotomontagePhotographing landscapes should not be limited to a simple point and click. There are many different capturing and editing techniques that artists, such as Matt Wisniewski, Keira Gruttner, and Fong Qi Wei, use in order to capture their surroundings through their unique perspectives and digital tools. Matt Wisniewski is a collage artist based in New York who takes fashion photographs and manipulates them to fit into a specific geological element or landscape photograph. His “Landscape” Series turns mountain ranges into heads atop human shoulders, or trees on a hillside into cascading hair. His other series’ “Mineral Minds” and “My Home is the Sea” combine minerals and stones, and crashing waves (respectfully) with the models, acting as either extensions of their anatomy or wardrobe. His work is both landscape and portrait photography in one. Keira Gruttner also uses collage to combine elements of landscape, but unlike Matt Wisniewski, Gruttner specifically focuses on nature. The artist states that her upbringing on the East Coast of Canada inspired her to create her collages. Her work is more tactile than other digital collages, as she first prints her landscapes and then carefully selects elements from each and assembles the pieces together, like a puzzle. She often repeats the process again through scanning the first collage, to then print and prepare for the final collage. The work of Fong Qi Wei, “Time is a Dimension”, is also puzzle-like, connecting different time-periods of the day with urban skylines to show the daily changes in our atmosphere. In one picture, we are able to see both morning and evening, as if the two were always ongoing at the same time. The artist’s work plays with time and dimension, where the photograph is not only capturing one moment in time, but many times in, what is presented as, one moment.  Each of these artists plays with our perceptions in terms of how we remember our surroundings and especially our relationship with the landscapes around us. Their works are refreshing examples of the new techniques in landscape photography. -Anna Paluch

    This is a photo by Nan Goldin of a call girl. I don't think we can judge people. They all have their own reasons. I think its sad that we live in a world where there is even an industry for this. We can't judge though, a lot of people feel they have no choice.
