The photographs in Posts and Poles in Contemporary Landscapes are showing a reality impossible to forget and to not see, an invading presence in the urban landscape as much as in the rural landscape, stuck there in the ground, vertical more or less: the post or the pole.

Anyone with a camera, one day or another, has been frustrated by its annoying presence in his viewfinder; like a scar in the middle of a field, in front of a building or in the background behind someone. Here, instead of trying to remove it, I have used its presence to be part of the image, to create the landscape around it.
