In contemporary times it is hard to consider nature as having it’s own entity. Humans have become part of the identity of the natural world and it’s becoming difficult to find a spaces in the wilderness that are untouched or unoccupied. Landscape photography has altered its focus away from utopian scenes and artists are using cameras to poignantly display the interaction between people and the landscape. Photographers are pin-pointing the changing landscape and as this natural change becomes accepted, absurdity becomes appealing and the spaces become occupied.
Landscape Interrupted was a photography exhibition focused on the influence, interaction and change that happens within the landscape when humans impact the natural world. Juried by William Jenkins, Professor of Photography at Arizona State University, the exhibition was open at the Coconino Center for the Arts in January/February 2010.
Juror: William Jenkins – Professor of Photography at Arizona State University. Former curator at the George East House International Museum of Photography and Film and responsible for the New Topographics Exhibition that changed the aesthetic and idea of what Landscape Photography is.
