This series aims to produce a juxtaposition of a nostalgic feeling towards nature and the deconstruction of landscape that has been shaped by human interference, attempting to disrupt the idealized and romantic view of nature.
Through Elena Cremona’s environmental landscape photography, she highlights the power of photography and its ability to expose certain aspects that viewer’s might not see otherwise, such as the terrifying beauty of our ever-changing landscape, the destruction of our earth and the ideas of the Sublime.
