Synthetica explores the tension between the natural and the artificial, challenging preconceptions of reality in an increasingly digital age, while also paying homage to my analogue photographic roots.

Each image in Synthetica started as a medium format film photograph, then, through a process of addition, subtraction, collage and endless reevaluation, a completed image is born. The foundation of a lot of the images in this series were taken over the last few years during road trips I took around the United States. From Daytona Beach, to Death Valley, to Yellowstone National Park, these were both natural and man-made landscapes – places I’d never been.

George Byrne creates large-scale photos that depict everyday surfaces and landscapes as painterly abstractions. Borrowing from the clean, vivid clarity of modernist painting, he also references the New Topographics photography movement via a subject matter firmly entrenched in the urban everyday.
