Ways of Engaging Nature: Part 2

Photography by Peter McLennan

This is the second post in the series, Ways of Engaging Nature, which highlights different ways that people can perceive and participate in nature to engage more actively with the environment.

Featuring the work of North American landscape photographer Peter McLennan, this photo essay invites viewers to contemplate how imagery can move us to reconsider the spaces and landscape around us. Some of McLennan’s rural landscapes recall old photographs, as if he’s documenting spaces that could be completely different in a few decades, due to the rate at which humans are changing the land. Other landscapes emphasize the boundlessness of the sky, suggesting the grand scale of geological time and the relative smallness of humanity.
