Reconstructed Landscapes

Matthew Chase-Daniel’s photo-assemblages alter our traditional view of landscapes. His meticulously gridded compositions restructure elements from a particular scene into a cohesive whole that becomes a reinterpretation of the very same scene. This process of editing is where the image becomes elevated from just a beautiful scenic to something more than the sum of its parts when he chooses the photographs “that flow together to express the original experience of seeing a place through time.”
