“The landscape is everything you can see when you look across an area of land.” Collins dictionary

 Sometimes it’s useful to imagine you’re feeding information to an AI device; the very barest description of a word (in this case, also a classic genre of photography) can help recalibrate and build new meaning from what you already know.

So to elaborate a bit on that: A photographic landscape is a reduction of what is there to be seen based on your position and the time you witness it taking into account: what you are feeling at that moment, what you choose to represent in your frame and what is symbolised within the limitations of your optical/mechanical/digital device.
