Description The ubiquitous nature of utility wires across the landscape is either an unrecognized or a despised feature. Nonetheless, it is often seen as a necessary evil. But, is it truly such a blemish on the every day landscape? Or, can a curious eye look a underlying qualities that speaks to the idea of 'form follows function'? The study of landscape as a cultural construct reveals that its appearance manifests the way society lives and functions. In this sense, its beauty lies in the way it reflects society, and its visual presence in our environment. For me, the beauty is further found in the complexity of its geometry as lines etched into the sky.
Brian Rojo, Arlington, MA. Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I'm a landscape architect with a curious eye for finding beauty and meaning in unexpected places. My portfolio contains many subjects, with an emphasis on landscape and architectural photography. I worked as a landscape architect for many years until I became disabled with a genetic disorder. As a result, I'm using photography as a means of expression, replacing the artistic sensibilities that I once found in my profession of designing landscapes and gardens. My aim is to seek out strong compositions and unique viewpoints of familiar and unfamiliar subjects. My interests range from rural to urban landscape, from modern to historic architecture, from plants to vernacular objects, from a sense of place to a sense of wonder. Ultimately, I hope to encourage others to find the beauty in their environment, and to be curious of the unfamiliar.
