Unless You Will issue 24

Blogging about this today, it’s an Australian online photo magazine. This issue is concerned with landscape photography and how artists connect to the land and photograph it.

The issue features 10 photographer’s practices on landscape photography and a really nice quote from Seneca in “Letters From A Stoic” –

“Are you telling me

not to investigate

the natural world?

Are you trying to bar
me from the whole
of it and restrict me
to a part of it?
Am I not to inquire
into the identity of
the artist who created
that universe?
Or the process by
which the huge mass
became subject to
law and order?
Or the nature of the
one who collected
the things that were
scattered apart, sorted
apart the things that
were commingled,
and when all things
lay in formless chaos
allotted them their
individual shapes?
Or the source of the
light (is it fire or is it
something brighter?)
Am I supposed not
to inquire into this
sort of thing?”
