“There’s a lot of talk about the tame world versus the wild world. It is not only a wild nature that we need as human beings; it is the untamed open space of our imaginations” Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal (144). JW used the resources of both books and nature to healing effect for what was essentially the same thing: nourishing the psyche. I never used to be interested in shots like this. They don’t have a centre of interest and the immediate impression is they are dull. Now I like them. The flat aesthetic is why this is pleasing. The mind rests on it without being pulled in any way, and then you start noticing the details.
