Towards the Maiella – Steve Middlehurst 2007

After spending so long looking at the historic and contemporary view of the Sublime I spent a little time looking back through my own work to identify a few photographs that might represent some traditional Burkian Sublime attributes. They are from a time when I walked and photographed regularly in the Gran Sasso range in Abruzzo Italy and my interpretation of the Sublime may be strongly influenced by an irrational fear of heights.
