The most pressing issues facing us today revolve around questions of our relationship to the planet we inhabit. While in the past the wilderness photographs of Ansel Adams defined the natural environment as a place of untouched pristine beauty, much recent photographic work has examined the increasing complexity of our interaction with the environment by focusing on such topics as pollution, global warming, industrial development, resource depletion, sustainability, recycling, and land use. For the PhotoPlace exhibition PHOTOGRAPHY AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN, we sought photographs that explore our relationship to the environment.
We are thrilled to welcome Kate Ware, Curator of Photography at the New Mexico Museum of Art, as juror for this exhibition. Kate selected forty photos for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from March 30th through April 20th, 2013 in an exhibition timed to coincide with the Middlebury College Museum of Art's exhibition Nature Transformed: Edward Burtynsky's Vermont Quarry Photographs in Context. Kate also chose thirty-five additional photos for the gallery's Online Annex. All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibitioncatalog available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes.
