Dynamic Landscape features four international artists whose photographs reveals the shifting relationship between figure and ground. Through narratives informed by landscape, their work focuses on the interplay between humanity, nature, and culture. From sun-scorched Africa to Canada’s frozen north, the illuminated streets of India, to Russia’s modest interiors - these images portray physical and psychological perceptions of the worlds we inhabit.
