<h1>Learning Agreement</h1><strong>Draft Proposal:</strong><strong>Provocative Landscapes</strong> (Working Title)
<strong>_________________________________________________________________</strong><p style=”text-align: justify;”><strong>Introduction</strong></p><p style=”text-align: justify;”>“[we] come from nature.…There’s an importance to [having] a certain reverence for what nature is because we are connected to it… If we destroy nature, we destroy ourselves.” – Edward Burtinsky</p><p style=”text-align: justify;”><strong>Objective</strong></p>
<ul style=”text-align: justify;”>  <li>To highlight certain nature/environmental issues.</li>  <li>To make landscape imagery relevant to people, possibly campaign awareness.</li>  <li>To collaborate with various people, creative and non-creative.</li></ul><p style=”text-align: justify;”><strong>Motive of project</strong></p><p style=”text-align: justify;”>First and foremost, my objective of this assignment was to stretch the definition of a ‘landscape’, as informed by my earlier research and works. Photographer <em>Edward Burtinsky </em>was an advocate on contributing to nature and environmental conservation, and so was <em>Sebastiao Saldago</em>. I realised the culture of this generation had become more receptive to ‘shocking’ imagery, <em>Oliviero Toscani</em> was the most notable photographer to implore this concept. More recently, photographer <em>Benjamin von Wong</em> utilised a similar concept but took it with a different approach. Kelly Richardson’s ‘Orion Tide’ is yet another example.</p><p style=”text-align: justify;”><strong>Image References &amp; Influences</strong></p><p style=”text-align: justify;”><img class=”alignnone wp-image-4502″ src=”https://oowenphotos.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/tran_brz_01.jpg&#8221; alt=”A 10763″ width=”679″ height=”541″ />Edward Burtynsky – Breezewood, Pennsylvania, USA, 2008</p><p style=”text-align: justify;”><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-3314″ src=”https://oowenphotos.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/dsc08963-5-2854×1605.jpg?w=2720&#8243; alt=”dsc08963-5-2854×1605″ width=”2853″ height=”1605″ />Benjamin Von Wong – Storm Chasing</p><p style=”text-align: justify;”><img class=”alignnone wp-image-3295″ src=”https://oowenphotos.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/oriontide_crop_600.jpg&#8221; alt=”oriontide_crop_600″ width=”676″ height=”381″ />Kelly Richardson –  Orion Tide</p><p style=”text-align: justify;”><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-4504″ src=”https://oowenphotos.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/intervention_rockpool_1_2007-11.jpg&#8221; alt=”intervention_rockpool_1_2007-11″ width=”1280″ height=”873″ />Tim Simmons – Rockpool #1</p>
