The investigation and image capture of the landscape dates back to the earliest photographs made by a camera in 1826 by Joseph Nicephore Niepce and the landscape still remains as one of the classic photographic genres.

Photographers have romanticized the landscape as part of the Pictorialist movement in the early 1900’s and incorporated it into the Modernist movement of the f/64 group in the 1940’s through the late 1960’s. The landscape photograph evolved with the Conceptual art movement, harking back to the New Topographics exhibition in 1975 at the George Eastman House exhibition. Today landscape photographs have become ubiquitous, either in the multitude of family vacations or the documentation of the surrounding urban/rural environments posted on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or other social media.

The images in Contemporary Landscape in this on-line exhibition are a broad investigation of the myriad ways in which we investigate the landscape through art and photography. It is a photographic survey of current landscape practices; whether investigating “classic” unadorned nature or the gritty urban landscape, as an abstract concept or a straight rendition while being created using digital capture, analog/film, digital manipulation or in combination with other medium and artistic expressions.

The 13 artist/photographers in this exhibition include: Paul Anderson, Jan Brueckner, Ellen Butler, Frank Cancian, Gerhard “Gerry” Clausing, Jim McKinniss, Jim Koch, Stan Kuran, Janos Lanyi, Scott Mathews, Marc Plouffe, Diane Reeves, Douglas Stockdale.

Cheers!
