Maarten Broekhuizen is fascinated by the long photographic tradition of depicting the sublime landscape. He strives in his work for photographic reproductions of landscapes that he has never visited or (as in this series) that do not exist. Studies for ‘Suggestive Landscapes’ is a series of nine unique handmade prints that serve as studies for larger format work. Broekhuizen uses expired photographic paper that has already been exposed and is therefore unusable for traditional darkroom printing. However, this rejected paper lends itself perfectly to 'painting' using photographic chemicals. By disconnecting the image of a landscape from the physical place, Broekhuizen is not restricted by traces of tourism, industry, or other (human) elements that disrupt his idealized vision of the landscape. Instead, he can construct pristine landscapes in the darkroom, with a degree of control equivalent to that of a painter.
