Jon Wyatt is an award-winning photographer shooting contemporary documentary landscape projects and commercial commissions. He is a Phase One Certified Professional.
The projects document the growing detachment of modern cultures from the physical landscape, using ‘tools’ within the landscape that articulate this rift. These ‘natural devices’ have included invasive vines [Fault Line], atmospheric phenomena [Huangshan Ltd] and time itself [Bamboo (Six Seconds)].
Silent beauty is used to engage the viewer with disquieting issues, asking them to re-evaluate their changed and fraught relationship with the land. Unease permeates the projects, which, through the lens of landscape iconography, address issues of conservation and ecology, ecosystem transition and the ethics of land use and ownership.
His work has been published in PDN, National Geographic Traveler, Orion Magazine and The Times amongst others and exhibited in Europe, SE Asia, the US and Canada.
