I suppose every photograph belongs to a place. Images here beg the question, where is that? They are mostly landscapes or cityscapes. Photographs that capture the essence of a place. I look for the image that becomes the memory of a journey, a visit or a stay in a place. Images that define locations, that tells us why that place is important and special. Making an ordinary place look extraordinary, or a hyped up place look mundane. It could be a decrepit building or a shinny high rise. Images of places are very straightforward: streets, sunsets, and buildings. The challenge of shooting places is to make them stand out. Sometimes people, animals or objects appear in the frame but it’s not about them as much as it’s about the place.
Because photos of places tend to cover a large area, mostly, but not always, they are shot with wide-angle lenses. In this vast area there is a wealth of detail to immerse in.
