Landscape photography is a special construct of art history that appeared in the mid-19th century. Following that tradition, generations of photographers glorified the visual models of a mysterious, quiet beauty that made the scenes reach the viewers effortlessly, both in the early and later ages of photography. In fact, is there anything simpler than a scene of timeless beauty; a landscape bathed in light, or mysteriously misty, left to a person’s imagination? As a rule, we unreservedly believe such images can be understood at first glance.
