Adam Friedman's Mysterious Landscapes

Illustration // Monday, January 13, 2014
'Modern societies attempt to understand and explain the mysteries of nature through various tangible human lenses such as science, technology, painting, literature, photography, etc. We also do so through more abstract methods such as “…intangible, metaphorical tools of the mind – contrast, remembrance, analogy…” And in both cases we “bring our own worlds to bear in foreign landscapes in order to clarify them for ourselves.” (Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams).
