John Blakemore. Landscapes
The Hyman Collection includes a broad selelction of John Blakemore's landscapes of England and Wales. One of Britian's greatest landscape and nature photographers and greatest darkroom printers, these equisitive works are a sophisticated, complex celebration of the sublime in nature. Blaskmore has explained: "I do not see my photographs as concerned with place in a geographic, a topographic sense. What I seek to evoke is the dynamic of the landscape, it's physical energy, it's fundamental mystery".
