In his photographic works, Andersen shows the mark of human activity on landscape. This photograph shows plough lines, visible in the brown land. Part of a larger series of aerial landscapes he created in the 1980s, this scene moves between legibility as a landscape and mere abstract patterning. The plough lines mimick the line of shrubbery, as if creating ripples in a pond. Physical Description
Print of an aerial view of plowed fields with U-shaped designs left by the machinery. A green swath cuts through the bottom fo the picture in another U-shape.Primary Object Classification Photograph Primary Object TypelandscapeAdditional Object Classification(s)PhotographCollection AreaPhotographyRights
