Synopses & Reviews
Critically acclaimed photographer David Ward explores the essential attributes of a successful landscape photograph—simplicity, ambiguity, and beauty—in this intriguing companion to his first book, Landscape Within
. David discusses how the notion of beauty has been viewed by artists and psychologists and how, despite various modifications over the centuries, the concept of beauty remains relevant. David suggests that all photographers’ work either poses a question or seeks to impose the photographer’s viewpoint, and he goes on to investigate how photography affects our interpretation of the world around us. Accompanied by a selection of David’s stunning, large-format landscape images, this is an elegant and insightful look into the nature of photography.
