Photographer Cosmo Coughlin documents his encounters in a style reminiscent of the great Ansel Adams. Both artists seem to approach the creation of a photograph with the desire to create cinematic impact, as Adams said “You don't take a photograph, you make it…”
Coughlin’s modernist choices – such as the motif of the open road also calls to mind David Hockney’s photo montages.. which demonstrated a rebellious and diverse take on photography and like Coughlin show a fascination for movement and time.
Vast horizons and the enormity of nature inspire my work, whilst the use of leading lines such as roads invites viewers into the compositions. Best viewed on a large scale, detail in all elements creates continued intrigue on every viewing, whilst the epic proportions of the landscapes themselves imbue a sense of wanderlust.
