Wel­come to this spe­cial July 2018 is­sue of Dig­i­tal Cam­era

Digital Camera World - - CONTENTS - Char­lie Waite Guest editor, Dig­i­tal Cam­era

What fun to be asked to ‘guest edit’ this is­sue! Hu­mans have al­ways wanted to hon­our the land­scape and be as near to it as pos­si­ble. There’s a pri­mal need to get close to the land. Pho­tog­ra­phers, pain­ters and po­ets just can­not seem to let it go: it’s as if they’ve got to bring their emo­tional ex­pe­ri­ence of the land to life. There’s a burn­ing com­pul­sion to say: “I find this ex­pe­ri­ence won­der­ful, and I need to evoke it”. The cam­era is a con­duit to all those things.

Choos­ing 25 land­scape lo­ca­tions was a chal­lenge, so I thought of places where I feel I’ve come away a bet­ter hu­man be­ing, en­riched by hav­ing been blessed by the ex­pe­ri­ence of that part of the world. The process of dis­cov­ery is so il­lu­mi­nat­ing and up­lift­ing, and I’m so grate­ful to have ex­pe­ri­enced such amaz­ing beauty. I hope you en­joy my se­lec­tion...

Chee­rio,
