Among our collection of Sky Landscape Photography, you’ll find limited-edition mixed media compositions by Peter Horvath. If you like bold, saturated colours or the use of iconic imagery, you may be interested in creations such as Turn Left At Mars. This space invading, surrealist concoction pays tribute to works by surrealist giants such as Marcel Duchamp and Rene Magritte, but with a modernist, Pop-Art twist.
In contrast, Pink Desert by Nadia Attura is a realistic landscape shot. The sky is captured as an immense, pink tableau blanketing a hotbed of fiery orange sand. By delicately contrasting, mixing and digitally layering photographic detail, her images become a painterly ode to her poetic view of the world.
The definition of Landscape Photography is fairly open but, generally speaking, the genre captures the life and vitality of spaces across the world, sometimes attesting to the beauty of nature, other times showcasing the power of the man-made. As a theme, such work can be as uplifting and inspiring as it can be dark and provocative, depending on the angle. Along the same vein, sky photography catches the immensity of the world above us, either by highlighting cottonwool clouds on cerulean skies or, conversely, sensationalising a hellish encounter with an angry storm.
Landscape Photography became particularly popular during the mid to late-19th century when photographer-come-environmentalists, such as the American William Jackson Henry, were inspired to show their appreciation of nature through photography. Their efforts sought to promote the preservation of natural places and the adoption of environmental compassion and awareness.
With Sky Landscape Photography, photographers tend to use the lighting of the sky to enhance the look and feel of a landscape shot. The Golden Hour is a particularly popular motif, where artists hone in on the moments just after sunrise or before sunset for the perfect amount of exposure and illumination.
Relatedly, Cloudscape photography explores ever-changing cloud formations. This is often as an abstract exploration or symbol of the photographer’s experiences, thoughts, and emotions, such as was the case for works by esteemed modern art advocate Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946).
