Photography and Filmmaking
The look of your film is reminiscent of the banal landscapes enshrined by American photographers in the ’70s.
Stephen Shore, Robert Adams and Joe Deal’s photography are big influences and part of that school of “man-altered landscapes.” For me a landscape that’s completely free of man-made stuff is not that interesting. I like a little bit of a footprint.
