The purpose with New Nature was to create a scene, cinematic in its feel, where two figures (made anonymous) walk through a landscape intended to be the protagonist. The landscape itself was to have a certain gravity to it, a dreamlike sense of calmness interwoven with an underlying, enveloping, fearfulness. The figures then become objects in the scene, their movements determined by nature and without real meaning or narrative. The technical aspect of the image is as follows: it consists of two intertwined photographs (where the models are family members). The landscape itself is from Sweden, from a small, rural, area just outside Stockholm. The work has been carefully processed and edited in the digital post-production stage, with large elements removed or altered to reach the final aesthetic mood and feel.
