Photography, Art Talk
Photographing the American Land -- An Alternate to Classic Landscape Photography The American landscape has a long tradition of photography—people have long admired our beautiful mountains, our wide rivers, our plains and forests. We also have a tradition in photography of how we have used the land, and how we are using it now. This presentation will discuss the tradition we have and the newer explorations of land in current practice throughout the country. The talk connects with the fall WAM exhibition "Kansas Land: Farm Photography by Larry Schwarm and Bryon Darby with University of Kansas Faculty." Sandra S. Phillips is Curator Emerita of Photography of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where she worked for nearly 30 years. She is among the leading photography writers and curators with projects on such greats as Ansel Adams to André Kertész, Diane Arbus to Rineke Dijkstra. Images of landscape and the West have been vital subjects of Phillips' writing, and this talk offers thoughts in her development of a future exhibition on land use.
