The whole thing is done in an empirical way, and is guided by a formal research both obsessive and demanding. These alternative landscapes offer a new reading of the potential nature of landscape, of its conventional forms and its given beauty, simplicity or magnificence.
My approach towards landscape is to incorporate a poetical component that will trigger an emotional response linked to the form and the light. I wanted to create something that wasn’t really a landscape but rather something engineered, so as to move the viewer in a different way. I experimented with this method in many locations and this global perspective, the presence of a complete series of images, adds weight to this artificial form that lights up, subdues and transforms the original landscape.
