About Jon Wyatt

Award-winning British photographer Jon Wyatt's work documents the growing detachment of modern cultures from our physical landscape. Landscape photography is used to document landscape issues. Through a lens of landscape iconography, his projects address issues of earth science and ecosystem transition, conservation and ecology, and the ethics of land use and ownership.
