dan carroll is another photographer who's work impressed me at free range 2012. dan was part of swansea metropolitan university's exhibition and his series is called;
"beauty spots takes a seemingly direct look at the persistant desire for involvement in areas of pre-ordained natural beauty. landscape has been tamed and subject to cultural modification so as to enable an ordered experience of the natural world. the part-staged scenes allow no identification of place, depicting a universally rehearsed experience and a view onto our relationship with landscape as a commodified leisure." - dan carroll
absolutely awe-inspiring work, these 'portraits' are so clean and the colours incredible. i could stand and look for hours, much like the subjects of the photographs themselves. really amazing series by dan.
