The Peacock Junction

This essay presents images depicting the contemporary landscape of Tamil Nadu in Southern India. In early January of 2020, as a result of an educational experience at an Indian academic institute, I conducted visual research that approached landscape photography as an immersive procedure in space, allowing me to reflect on the territory and its representations. Throughout its development, with the landscape revealing itself as a space for interaction, the genre of landscape photography juxtaposes complex relationships that go beyond a simple transcription of nature, expanding the idea of the landscape through the transformations provoked by its inhabitants, the observer’s presence, the off-camera, and its historical representations.
