Landscape as Muse: Hudson Bay Lowlands with Richard Holden (2007)
We travel north through Manitoba to the Hudson Bay Lowlands with photographer Richard Holden. While he is setting up a shot, he offers his personal insights to photography and what he is trying to capture. The real challenge, as a photographer, is to give some sense that the world is a continuous place; it is a continuous experience. It is all down to trying to get what it felt like to be there while viewing the photograph.
Trekking intrepidly over stretches of rolling rocks or through vast green fields, he searches for the perfect landscape. No matter where he goes, there is always something there that is a reminder of mankind’s impact on the environment. No place is pure and pristine anymore.
