New Mexico Museum of Art: Grounded

On Display March 7 – August 17, 2014

Complementing the concurrent exhibition of photographs by Joan Myers, this selection of landscape photographs from the museum’s collection examines, literally, the ground beneath our feet. This approach to landscape photography highlights an essential but usually overlooked subject, resulting in some extreme and minimalist images. Works include Lee Friedlander’s shadow self-portrait at Canyon de Chelly, Aaron Siskind’s close-up of lava, Eliot Porter’s view of The Black Place, and other gems. The show also premiers several examples from a recent body of work on unmarked graves, loaned to the museum by Santa Fe artist Richard Baron.
