Nostalgic Outdoors

Nostalgic Outdoors

Dylan Lewis is a photographer and writer from Richmond, Virginia. Addressing themes of loneliness and alienation in the 21st century, the images – caught at hazy moments during the day with lilac skies and dusky mountains – express a sense of longing.

The photographic impulse to document, whilst creating fantasies and mythologies through new visual languages, comes to the fore in Lewis’s work. The American neoliberal landscape is a point of departure for sombre and reflective compositions.

Empty land is called upon, whilst phone lines, pylons and road signs create glare within the eye of the viewer. A sense of romanticism is conjured through pastel pink skylines and nostalgic houses.
