Do you have any tips for shooting wide, relatively monochromatic landscapes like this one?
“Well, some height always helps. I often photograph from the roof of my motorhome when shooting landscapes; a slightly elevated vantage point allows the relationship of individual bodies and buildings in the landscape to be clearly observed. I also like to photograph at times of the day or in weather conditions that give me a more restrained, pastel palette of colors.”
What time of day did you take the picture? What type of equipment did you use?
“The photograph was taken at dawn using a Phase One medium format digital camera, which was mounted on a monopod to give myself some stability and prevent camera shake.”
Do you have any other cool projects in the works that you’d like to share?
“I’m currently working on a longer-term project, in Cuba, which brings together four European and four Cuban photographers to collaborate on a book and exhibition for the 2021 Havana Biennial. I’m looking at the role of faith in a post-Castro era, where various religious practices — from Christianity and Islam to Baha’i and Santeria — have been allowed to grow, and appear to form an important part of contemporary Cuban society.”
