The concept of the Terra Recognita series is simple. These are extraordinary landscapes derived from ordinary places. Exotic beauty exists all around us. We simply have to look around and be willing to witness it. David has been developing this series over the course of the last few years. Most of the scenes take place in/around/near St. Louis where Ikon Photographs is based. It is finding 'art' in the every day environment that makes "Terra Recognita" or "Recognized Land" so important. These are places all around us that cry out for recognition for the beauty they contain.
