sticky day 8

Pointing to Richard Miscrach without the spectacular vantage point, and to Catherine Opie without the dense fog. What is it about the incompressible scale of the landscape that with the tiny figure snaps it somewhat into place?

These guys knew how to use the figure in the landscape in the late 1800's. I also like how she used her body in the landscape in the early 1980's.
My work has usually been about abstracting scale in my photographs but I find myself entranced with the bobbing heads and the endless horizon that I have been observing each day.
