Back To The Land | Photographer: Kari Medig

Back To The Land | Photographer: Kari Medig | gloria | Scoop.it

The human/nature interface creates an edge we are constantly walking along, especially in rural areas. Historically, this tension is often depicted in terms of survival, but I wanted to show it could be a bit more contemplative, joyous, humorous, yet still occasionally harsh. Once I realized this, the project seemed to take on more of a cohesive form.—Kari Medig

 His series Back to the Land is an ongoing project that examines the intersection between humans and nature. It is a product of documenting the nook in Canada where he lives, and the subjects he runs into in his everyday life.

“Photography is a medium of formidable contradictions. It is both ridiculously easy and almost impossibly difficult. It is easy because its technical rudiments can readily be mastered by anyone with a few simple instructions. It is difficult because, while the artist working in any other medium begins with a blank surface and gradually brings his conception into being, the photographer is the only imagemaker who begins with the picture completed. His emotions, his knowledge, and his native talent are brought into focus and fixed beyond recall the moment the shutter of his camera has closed.” – Edward Steichen

It’s important to have less information around so you can fill the space with ideas. I need white walls. I hate coffee table books that people have just for decoration, when no one ever looks at them and they take up space and collect dust.
