Inlands: Minor Landscapes



Petros Koublis (b. 1981) explores the raw beauty of nature. His series Inlands: Minor Landscapes aims to examine the limits of a landscape moving inwards in coloured, mysterious photographs. The images describe a state of transformation and explore the natural world by setting their focus on small individual fragments. Inlands plays with the idea that every landscape can be decomposed into an infinite number of minor ones. The more we look inwards, the more actual nature seems to be replaced by an abstract one. The narrative of the project is based on this abstractness and feeling of disorientation, the alienation of familiar surroundings. Koublis' obscure images encourage us to abandon our perception based on knowledge and familiarity, and aim to create a mystique and closer look on the transformation that takes place beneath the surface of things.
