Victoria Leighton is a recent fine art graduate based in St Albans, currently studying MA Photography at University of Hertfordshire. Her current work challenges the expanding notion of photography in a fine art context. Dual Landscapes is an ongoing series which emerged during lockdown having had to adapt to the pandemic. The images begin as digital long exposures taken of local landscapes, which are abstracted in-camera using intentional camera movements. These are then printed and go through a further transformative process of abstraction through camera-less techniques such as ‘scanography’ where the images (or fragments of the images) are moved, rotated and combined during scanning. This series references experimental Pictorialist techniques and explores the dualities of landscape and technology; painting and photography; and the analogue and digital divide.
