Landscape Photographs present a series of seven photographs that take as their source the desktop backgrounds featuring landscapes introduced as part of the Windows XP operating system. 

While these images of landscapes have acquired iconic status, they remain mostly authorless recalling to mind only the global corporation that circulated them.

Extracted from the operating system, these images were first materialised as photo-prints from a local studio and then re-photographed using the built-in camera flash of the camera as the only source of light. The flash inflects these images with a visible trace of the newly performed action of photography and the assertion of an overlaid authorship, namely my own.
