Paradise on Earth - Films on Demand

Episode 6

Synopsis

This episode explores how cultures have depicted the natural world in landscape painting throughout history. We investigate the way that landscape painting is created as a response to the world around us, exploring such ideas as paradise, identity and the depiction of the vastness of nature to oppositional to industrialization. We explore landscape photography, from Ansel Adams’ majestic depictions of Yosemite, to modern photography and a new kind of landscape which explores the cosmic sublime. © Infobase
