Northern Light

Landscape, Photography and Evocations of the North

Edited by Chris Goldie and Darcy White

Transcript-Verlag

These essays confirm the continued relevance of 'north' as a site of cultural practice and artistic endeavor. If northern regions are tangible realities, the place of varied topography, light, climate, and biogeography, the location of distinct peoples and culture, typically they have been depicted through the traditions of northern landscape representation and the cultural narratives of an era. These discussions—focusing on Scotland, Northern England, Northern Europe, Siberia, the Arctic, and Nordic lands—by photographic practitioners as well as theorists, explore and question this tradition, considering landscape as experience, reinterpreting notions of wilderness, emptiness, and the sublime.
