Landscape as Muse

Season Three - Episode 32

Hudson Bay Lowlands with Richard Holden
Spring on the Hudson Bay lowlands brings dynamic change. As ice breaks up on the bay, days alternate between grey and dreary and sunny and warm. From the glacially carved orange and red rocks that line the shore, to the expansive patches of tundra, Richard Holden’s 360-degree panoramas capture the essence of the landscape. As he photographs this vulnerable area, Richard shares his personal perspective on the human relationship to the places around us.

"I'm photographing the world as though it were a garden because I think that's what it has become. There's nothing natural out there anymore. Human beings actually garden the whole planet whether they know it or not. And we’re not very good at it."
