‘Since the invention of photography, not just since digital networks, images – all images are unsettled, displaced, drifting. Rather than see photography as fixing a fleeting reality we might see it as helping to produce images as transient and fleeting’ *
Michelle Henning Photography 2018 the Unfettered Image Oxford Routledge p7 37
Recent graduate of Bath Spa University, Laura Carter specialises in contemporary landscape photography. Her images are a formal inquiry into the relationship between photography and abstract painting, physically exploring through a contemporary practice the medium, both in terms of our perception of subject matter but also in terms of how a photograph establishes as an object through a concentration on the landscape. Utilising similar fields of colour and abstract forms in her photographic style to bring to life her painterly landscapes. Her practice therefore takes on a physical exploration through experimental practice the medium, both in terms of our perception of subject matter but also terms of how a photograph establishes as an object.
As well as her experimental practice, subtle colour and a minimalist approach combines to create her contemporary landscape photography practice. Her images capture the quiet moments of modern day, highlighting the simplicity of our hectic landscape through creative use of light and form.
