Cryptic Landscapes

Artsy's recent featured collection of New Landscape Photography set me on a search for otherworldly landscapes in art, some of which I've gathered here. 

Our planet is endlessly mysterious and and at the same time, fraught with conflict over its resources and inhabitable spaces. 

Strong landscape images, I hope, help to inspire wonder instead of a desire to possess. These artists document spaces that, while altered by human presence, have been around much longer than we have, and will continue to exist long after we're gone.
