The world of diverse landscape is a matter of sheer wonder. The same core materials create dissimilar experiences, the same mountains in different parts of the world can create varying stories. The landscapes teach us the humane ways of living, for ourselves and other beings of the world. These elements change the definition of home and relationships, amplifies the emotion behind each story. Landscape is a system, it consists of not only the physical object people see with their eyes, it is far more elaborated from the perspective of memories, changing from one personality to another. In the end, a landscape is a space, the presence of elements and figures makes it a place for someone. The contact between human and landscape is crucial, an essential relationship in this universe. Human efforts to find the meaning of the surface lines allow them to grow an attachment with the earth. It makes sure that growth and life happen, in this intense core. Along with portraying realistic landscapes, it is a necessity to illustrate and understand this attachment. It is quite urgent to feel our inseparable relationship with the places we are putting our mark in. The travel illustrations are trying to reach the same goal, by portraying the presence in landscape. Walking on the rocks of majestic mountains, catching the sunlight in the waves of water, the growth of life in the ancient red brick walls or the carcade of new civilization by the river, the illustrations depict all these experiences in a more down-to-earth way, the way it has been known.
