“The feeling behind the set of cloud images was me wanting to get across this sense of clarity and calmness as at the time I had just flown back to London for an exhibition that was featuring some of my work whilst still being on the Don Broco tour at the same time. I was super busy and swept off my feet. Whilst on the flight I noticed out of the window this sort of tranquility and calmness in the clouds that created random structures and shapes as if they were on the ground or in a desert. At first glance this gave an abstraction and so I immediately started snapping out of the window and the results were fantastic.
The other couple of landscapes were me trying to portray both my harshness and softness that I bring into my fashion work and put this feeling on scenes in the world to see if they still give off the same emotive aesthetic. The corn field being harsh and lonely, and the power plant in the ocean being sort of creamy and inviting, which is much the same as my work with medium format film, which gives a nice juxtaposition to the subject matter.” – Kane Layland, Photographer.
