Student Awards Jury Comments
The purpose of this guidebook is to acquaint teachers and students
of landscape architecture with the techniques and theories that
influence the way we take and read photographs. The goal of this
guide is to enable a process of active taking and looking. The lessons
and examples articulate ways to more deeply and critically engage
in the photographic process as a part of the larger design process.
Like all other tools of representation, there are qualities inherent
to the photographic process that can be mastered and manipulated
to yield photographic representations that more closely match the
perceptions of a place, which can be literal or abstract. This mastery
is a step towards active engagement of the tool: the camera; and
the representations it yields: the photograph.
