Roger Hopgood’s work often features an uneasy relationship between ‘nature’ and technology.

In the twenty-first century, digital manipulation has become an increasingly important tool in the development of post-photography – an approach to photographic art that bypassess the medium’s ‘duty’ to articulate the single instant. Using digital assemblage, Roger Hopgood’s work explores notions of landscape; but as landscape ‘after the fact’, there is no reverence for nature and the pastoral. The locations presented to us resonate not with a spirit of place but with intertextual reference. Principally, we are reminded of cinema and popular fiction. The picturesque view (historical and contemporary) is at the core of Hopgood’s premise.
