DanielAlford2After years of shooting landscapes, photographer Daniel Alford came to realize that some of his favorite photos weren’t landscapes at all – they were portraits, albeit very little ones.

Up until this realization, Alford did everything he could to avoid getting humans in his beautiful landscape photographs. But while sorting through his work one day, he recognized and began to love the sense of scale the tiny figures would present against a sprawling scene.

This revelation of sorts led him to completely rethink his approach going forward. Rather than trying to achieve what Alford called ‘wilderness and uncontaminated natural beauty’ in his landscape images, he realized ‘the most important thing about the natural world at moment is how we interact with it.’DanielAlford3‘We need to reconnect responsibly with the natural world,’ says Alford. ’[We need to] realise we are apart of it, and its a part of us too.’
