Antone's Picks: The Great Unreal

Copyright Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs

Exploration of the America landscape has always fascinated me. Whether through photography or literature, the American landscape has been portrayed in every thinkable manner and more often than not, has been defined by the people living in the landscape. Swiss photographers Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs's book The Great Unreal takes a whimsical look at the American frontier, often using illusion and manipulation of their images to investigate a land that has itself been manipulated by the people living in it.

Innovative landscape photography is never easy, especially in a country that has such a rich history in the medium. Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs are pushing the idea of the contemporary landscape, and the images in The Great Unreal have certainly pushed my notions of what a landscape photograph can offer conceptually and aesthetically. I highly recommend taking a serious look at this work, as it is rare to see America portrayed in such a unique way.
