Debra Bloomfield’s “Wilderness”

July 18, 2014

In her photographic series “Wilderness”, artist Debra Bloomfield journeyed to the rural outback to photograph her experiences within her surroundings. Straying from the typical landscape composition, Bloomfield photographed what it felt like to be in the wilderness. While photographing, she also recorded audio and composed a soundscape that she paired with the work. The soundscape reflected the sounds she experienced while photographing and reflects the sounds that engulfed her and greatly influenced the work.
