As an artist I strive to produce work that is deeply personal and visually engaging. My photographs are all considered landscapes. The landscape to me is not a place but an idea, a representation of spaces and form from a specific point of view. The landscape is a distant surface and can be represented as external forms, or emotional constructs. We are after-all products of our environments and we alter the landscape to cope with the existential concerns of life. My work does not attempt to answer the question of being, instead it poses questions about what it means to be human, to exist. It is what the viewer brings to the work that, like a shadow, outlines its true meaning. You can see more of my work at www.paulmelhado.com
