Joan Fontcuberta

Joan Fontcuberta Work from Landscapes Without Memory. There is also a great review here. “Rather than venturing out into nature, Joan Fontcuberta creates plausible, even spectacular landscapes using Terragen, a computer program originally created for military and scientific uses that turns maps into images of three-dimensional terrain.
