Accompanying the 19th edition of the Noorderlicht International Photo Festival, this catalogue delves into the relationship between man and nature. How do we experience nature, and what is its value for us? Our romantic longing for pure nature is diametrically opposed to the practical desire to control the world and cultivate it. 'Terra Cognita' looks at nature from far away and close by, as a dream and as reality, in our genes and in our minds.
