New Landscape Photography is the study and intentional misuse of photographic chemistry and 19th-century techniques to challenge tradition, and construct unfamiliar topographies. Acting as critic and participant, using the chemistry against itself becomes a means to address the current influx of abstract and material based photographic explorations by the intentional depletion and destruction of materials required for the process. Using historic Tintype and Mordançage techniques, process is separated from representational imagery to place materiality in positions of becoming a future surface. It is from this point that a critical discourse on contemporary uses of these processes can happen.
