This morning I have been reading through the section entitled “Landscape and Gender”. One of the suggested photographers to look at was Helen Sear and in particular her series “Grounded”. I thought I would give it a quick look, however I found her work really impressive.
It is such a simple idea but very well executed. if I had looked at them before reading how they have been created, I could have easily mistaken them for real landscapes. Due to the simplicity of the animal hides, the focus appears to be more on the skies and the appear to have been effortlessly blended. Some of the skies are particularly beautiful and I drawn to them as this is something I have been thinking of photographing myself.
