Landscape Portraits In his essay ‘The Photographic Message’ Roland Barthes observes that the background setting and items placed in a scene operate as ‘elements of signification’, which influence meaning.Landscape Portraitsexplores this idea through a series of portraits. My subjects are all friends who are also landscape photographers. I asked each of them to choose a location somewhere in the landscape for their portrait - a place that has special significance for them. In this way, the setting not only functions as the stage set for the portrait but also adds contextual meaning through its psychological connection with the subject. All of the subjects are women raising the issue of gender in photography. Keith Greenough, March 2015 Work from Landscape Portraits was exhibited at Photofusion Salon15 in December 2015
