“Landscape isn’t either objective or subjective; it’s precisely an intertwining, a simultaneous gathering and unfurling, through which versions of self and world emerge as such. ... we often seem to have the choice between landscape conceived as a material entity in some form – animate or inanimate – and landscape as idiosyncratically located in the eye of the beholder. But I think that a more productive agenda for landscape geographers lies in abiding within and creatively using this tension between materiality and perception."
(John Wylie, in Peter Merriman et al, “Landscape, mobility, practice”, Social & Cultural Geography, 2008 p. 203.
