Photography and Environmental Concern, PhotoPlace Gallery
The most pressing issues facing us today revolve around questions of our relationship to the planet we inhabit. While in the past the wilderness photographs of Ansel Adams defined the natural environment as a place of untouched pristine beauty, much recent photographic work has examined the increasing complexity of our interaction with the environment by focusing on such topics as pollution, global warming, industrial development, resource depletion, sustainability, recycling, and land use. - PhotoPlace Gallery
