Land and Lens: Photographers Envision the Environment

September 15–December 10, 2017

Photographs drawn primarily from the Museum’s rich holdings make up this comprehensive survey of photography and the environment. The exhibit, which is organized in categories spanning cosmological time to the present day, presents seventy images through the lens of environmental appreciation, concern, or activism. Professor Kirsten Hoving, with her students and research assistants, has also produced an innovative and comprehensive digital catalogue, accessible to all visitors, as a companion to the exhibit.
