I’ve heard some people say that they don’t like landscapes, that they’re pedestrian and cliché. I say those people haven’t seen the right landscape yet. We as humans depend heavily on what we can see to interpret the world around us. That interpretation can of course be functional, but we also experience emotions through our eyes. Similarly to how hearing your favorite song, tasting a delicious morsel, smelling a bakery or feeling fabric against your skin can cause you to feel happy, nostalgic or sad, so too can the sight of a sweeping landscape.
Although landscapes (as implied by the name) traditionally feature land forms front and center, Greg also has a penchant for skyscapes. In these type of ‘landscapes’, clouds, stars or the moon call out for attention, and the earth is the supporting actor. During the day, Greg delights in the dramatically mercurial clouds of the New Mexican sky. At night, the remote regions of the state allow him to capture the innumerable stars without light interference. Using long exposures on the stars illustrates the earth’s rotation, making them look like millions of comets orbiting a central point.
