Zak van Biljon – ‘Modernising Nature’

Zak van Biljon’s ‘Modernising Nature’ – a surreal perception of our world beyond the visible spectrum, created with the infrared light technique.

“Our idea of landscapes is not landscape by itself. Nothing exists by itself but only through perception. Our perception, however, is subject to both individual watching and classifying what we see. Pictures of natures are not about falsifying nature itself but are reflecting our perception of nature… What kind of image do we have? On social media channels users are sharing zillions of filtered photos of nature – or what they think nature must look like…We need a new way of looking at nature in the 21st century, just like the landscape painters of the 19th century who were confronted with industrialization.”
