Sense of Place: European Landscape Photography
Library Shelf Location 27.WELL
Publication Date 2012
Description This thought-provoking collection of superb photographic landscapes explores the connection between land and national identity. Is Europe a union in name only? How does the land we live on contribute to our culture? How does it divide or unite a collection of cultures? These important questions are at the root of this pictorial examination of Europe’s heterogeneous landscape. This book brings together images from 27 European Union nations and from prominent artists such as Olafur Eliasson (Denmark), Andreas Gursky (Germany), Carl De Keyzer (Belgium), Massimo Vitali (Italy), and Celine Clanet (France). The book shows how landscape photography in particular offers critical insights into the characteristics of a place, inviting viewers, through a subjective lens, to form their own feelings toward that place. Organized into three broad geographic zones, it offers exquisite depictions of Europe’s wonderfully varied geography — shorelines and fjords, mountains and plains, farmland and urban centers — as it seeks to understand the source of the continent’s diversity and unity.
