America Seen Through Photographs Greatly

The photograph examines the role of art in America, and focuses on the historic vision of independence and how photography has drawn attention, changed aesthetics and view points in the western world. The scene is reminiscent of a classical painting with its manipulation of light in a chiaroscuro effect and composition that evokes the longing for a romanticized world. The photograph thus draw us into the dynamic mix of nature and culture specific to the American South, and entices a sense of emotional participation.
