The word landscape has been used in many different ways. One can speak about cultural, geopolitical or media landscape. The meaning of the word is broad as it promises a bigger picture - a panoramic perspective of a certain area seen from a conveniently distanced viewpoint. Our book focuses on the fundamental idea of landscape as an expanse of scenery, both rural and urban. A range of vistas is presented as a starting point for examining our relationship with the land. Extensive sections of panoramic views, their qualities and features provide the opportunity to consider the way we see the landscape, explore and experience it. Breath-taking photos make a wonderful background for this far-reaching reflection. Inspired by majestic landscapes, the collection of short essays explores a set of concepts like 'horizon', 'place', 'community' or 'wandering'. Organized alphabetically they are also reflecting the way we live today.
