Many landscape photographs are featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, and ambient light. As with most forms of art, the definition of a landscape photograph is broad, and includes urban settings, industrial areas, and nature photography. Waterfalls, coastlines, seascapes and mountains are especially popular in classic landscape photography. But in fact most places and things can be photographed as a landscape, a kitchen, a lamp, a wall, or even the human body. Contemporary landscape photography has made a notable shift from being about nature and the environment towards being more about the direct relationship between man and nature and where they come together.
The Worcester Alliance of Photographers offers these images for your viewing pleasure and it is all open to your interpretation. Participating photographers include: Bob Bernier, C.L. Padden, Dana Lane, David Snay, Deb Faucher, Dick Tranfaglia, Don Riclin, Howard Kong, Jim Wojdylak, Jurgen Lobert, Mike Greenslit, Pam Pollan, Paul Goodwin, Rebecca Weiner, Russ Garre, Scott Erskine, Sharon Freed, Sheila McDowell, Sherri Haber and Troy Thompson.
