Geoffrey Ansel Agrons creates hauntingly beautiful photographs of trees, which focus on the uneasy coexistence of humans and the natural world. Working in black and white, his images appear eerily silent, while the quality of the images draws you into the beauty of his landscapes.
Riccardo Cavallari also appears to comment on the juxtaposition between the man-made and natural world. In his Tree in Studio (2011) series, Cavallari creates a stark contrast between the white enclosed interior and the seemingly wild shape of the tree, which attempts to grow and escape from the claustrophobic space.
Following the wider spread availability of photography in the 19th century, a renewed interest in natural beauty lead to greater photographic documentation and discoveries. In turn, nature photography came to be considered an art in its own right.
The exploration of the USA in the nineteenth century was a hugely exciting time for photographers and conservationists alike. William Henry Jackson and Carleton Watkins were both early pioneers of landscape photography and their sublime imagery was fundamental in the declaration of Yellowstone as the first National Park.
While these artists were primarily focused on documenting the geographic landscape, the transition towards photographing the landscape for purely aesthetic reasons was controversial.
Peter Henry Emerson pioneered this transition at the end of the nineteenth century. His photographs of the Norfolk Broads were similar to the atmospheric Impressionist paintings being produced at the same time, yet his desire for them to be considered fine art was widely rejected.
Emerson’s fight marks the beginning of a long journey for photography. Today, incredible technological advances allow us to take stunning images in high definition. Other technologies allow us to manipulate the colour, exposure or composition, to play with the natural beauty that surrounds us.
