Vast horizons and the enormity of nature inspire my work, whilst the use of leading lines such as roads invites viewers into the compositions. Best viewed on a large scale, detail in all elements creates continued intrigue on every viewing, whilst the epic proportions of the landscapes themselves imbue a sense of wanderlust.
"Cosmo Coughlin documents his encounters in a style reminiscent of the great Ansel Adams. Both artists seem to approach the creation of a photograph with the desire to create cinematic impact, as Adams said “You don't take a photograph, you make it…”
Coughlin’s modernist choices – such as the motif of the open road also calls to mind David Hockney’s photomontages.. which demonstrated a rebellious and diverse take on photography and like Coughlin show a fascination for movement and time."
