In the last year or so, I’ve found myself making the occasional odd photograph. What I mean by odd is that they seem to have the air sucked out of them; they are pressed landscapes, flattened like a pretty flower in a heavy book. It’s an optical illusion created in part by compositional design and focal length, of course. But I like it because I can use my creative photographic toolkit to portray reality in an unusual way. Gets one thinking!
