Earth Now: American Photographers and the Environment

Apr 23, 2011 | Free reception, then with museum admission
 

Just as environmental awareness has changed over the past century, so has environmental photography. Katherine Ware curates an exhibition in conjunction with the release of her book by the same name, Earth Now: American Photographers and the Environment. The exhibition is divided into two loose sections of 20th and 21st century art. Ware says the 20th century saw two ends of the spectrum in environmental photography: Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter, “idealists who would photograph pristine unpopulated land” midcentury, and photographers such as Richard Misrach who were “more critical of what’s going on, who show bad things” toward the century’s end. Ware posits that the 21st century is more middle-of-the-road. “It’s about accepting the situation we have and trying to move forward from there,” she says. The work of more than 30 photographers, many of whom are from New Mexico, traces varying perceptions of environmentalism in art through a medium that, in itself, can be severely detrimental to the environment. “I’m interested in getting us to look at the choices we’re making,” Wares says.
