Wouter van Buuren

Total Landscapes

The serie Total Landscapes arose from the question of whether a landscape can be perceived in its totality. Wouter van Buuren's  images are comprised of more than a 100 photos taken from high-tension pylons. The individual photos are unaltered, and can be distinguished in the larger image. This allows the whole landscape to be perceived as the sum total of a large number of smaller landscapes.

"I started to make the total landscapes in the Netherlands when I was climbing electricity pylons. I was stunned by the beauty of the landscape I thought I knew so well. From above the mundane seemed more divine."

Wouter van Buuren (Netherlands, 1972) took courses at the Vrije Academie Werkplaats voor Beeldende Kunsten and the Amsterdams Centrum voor Fotografie. His work has been seen in exhibitions in the Netherlands, Germany and the United States. Wouter van Buuren lives and works in Amsterdam.
