Reading Response: Of Mother Nature and Marlboro Men

This article was really interesting because I do fall into the same sort of perception of nature and landscape photography without realizing how regulated our small areas of nature really are.  This reading did give me a new perspective on landscape photography and cultural creation of nature in general.  I especially found Deborah Bright’s religious comparison of nature interesting.  Because it is so true that Americans do indirectly worship nature and the landscape.  I think it is something both culturally created proven by Bright’s mention of the 20th century national park craze and something that is innate in us as humans to preserve and worship nature, why else would people go camping if they didn’t?
