This essay presents images and texts that depict the contemporary landscape of Tamil Nadu, Southern India. In early January of 2020, as a result of an educational experience at an Indian academic institute, I conducted a visual research by which I deemed landscape photography an immersion procedure in space to reflect on the territory and its representations. During its development, once the landscape reveals itself as a space for interaction, the genre of landscape photography juxtaposes complex relationships that go beyond a simple transcription of nature. It expands the idea of landscape mainly through the transformation caused by its inhabitants, the presence of the observer, the off-camera and its historical representations.
