Samantha Contis Landscape Photography

Samantha Contis captures desolate farmland with a warming composition. The photos ebb naturally in contrast and are a pleasingly subtle juxtaposition to most landscape photography.

It’s not a rare occurrence to encounter some sort of epic landscape photography: Mountains jutting out of the earth, unworldly fluorescent fields of flowers, surreal light bouncing off some tropical body of water. These may be some of the reasons why it is so refreshing to see Contis’ body of work entitled ‘Landscape’.

Apart from gaining her MFA from Yale, there must be reason to believe there’s an innate ability here for depicting leaden rolling hills, and bare branches in a way that isn’t eminently depressing, yet, prompts other confusing sensory reactions; visually quiet, audibly stark, hushed, much like the sound of snow hitting the ground somewhere in Pennsylvania. Each photo is somehow pastoral without being obnoxious. I can just imagine someone hushing the use of adjectives because there’s an unspoken beauty behind such subtle imagery, and I quite enjoy its reservations.
