When I was attending the SPESC conference this fall i had the chance to catch Laura McPhee's discussion of her work, River of No Return. What I found the most interesting is that i was so drawn to her landscapes. Usually i see a landscape and i walk right by but as she showed and talked about her photographs of this beautiful scenery, i couldn't help but to stare. They seem to speak more than just how beautiful the land is, its almost as if she captures the scenery in a way that it can speak to us not just in beauty but something more. I especially love the image of the frozen dead fish in the water these are defiantly images i can refer to for my personal project which deals with water and reflections.
