About The Emotional Landscape series:

All of us have a deep connection to places and landscapes from our past. Through our memories we see these places not as they are, but through the filter of emotion. The Emotional Landscape series explores emotional qualities of landscapes where I feel a deep connection.
I photograph and express these landscapes using my iPhone and iPad. Using the iPhone gives me the ability to capture what I see unencumbered by a heavy camera. The image capture is then processed and manipulated on my iPhone and iPad to express my emotional response to the landscape. My work is not about capturing reality, but creating a neo-Romantic world reflective of my imagination. -Karen Klinendinst
