Picture postcards, calendars and travel brochures show us glimpses of romantic, majestic and idyllic location to be admired and appreciated. The beautiful and wonderful are identified, observed, recorded and labelled repeatedly by professionals, tourists and travellers. Photography responds to the basic social needs and expectations to capture, document and appreciate.
In order to avoid a stereotypical representation it is important to connect emotionally with the environment in order to express something personal. How do you as an individual feel about the location and what do you want to say about it?
