“These are artists who have engaged the natural world and humanity’s place in that world, over many years,” says 2016 Biennial co-curator Wendy Watriss. “Many of the artworks manifest the artists’ rigorous investigations into science and philosophy.” Featured projects address the anthropocene – climate change; industrialization and urbanization; bio-diversity; water; the use of natural and human resources; human migration; global capital, commerce and consumption; energy production; and waste.

I am honored to be included in the Dubai Photo Exhibition. An international exhibition that invited curators from all over the world to highlight important photographers throughout history. Natasha Egan, Executive Director, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago was invited to curate on behalf of USA/CANADA. In this exhibit she presented: “The eight artists in this exhibition, each born between 1895 and 1969 in the United States or Canada, grapple with the conundrums of human experience and interaction, whether personal or societal, and use a range of photographic strategies to represent their concerns and pursue results.”
