Album Magazine – “My Friend, the Tree”. Call for submission
The green, the organic, the sprawling, the modelled after nature, the re-naturalised and re-planted, the extracted, the naturally sorted, the utopia of nature, the domesticized and rearranged nature, the sublime, the naturally isolated, the untamable, the rooted.
2013: back to nature. Ever present are the lumberjack shirts and the continuously growing beards. The desire for nature, for something primordial, seems omnipresent. Off the beaten tracks of familiar coffee-table books (“Our wild …”, “Beautiful …”, “On the way through …” etc.), artistic photography referring to this subject area becomes this issue’s focus of attention. What is photography able to add besides the sheer act of documenting nature? What is striking about photography of plants, trees and landscapes beyond mere beauty and sublimeness? How can nature be art today? How artificial is nature? What significance do terms like “genuineness” and “nativeness of nature” carry in this context?
