It is this thesis that drives my investigation of the landscape. This series acts as an evaluation of representation of the landscape as a means to revive the aura of place. By focusing on light, time, and chemical and digital interactions, these images explore integral features of photography in order to reveal new ways of experiencing the visual, material, and ephemeral aspects of environment. To achieve this, I collaborate with each environment using natural elements to produce views that are outside of our limited, visual perception and only made visual through the inherences of photographic recording processes. _Kyra Schmidt
Featuring more than 600 photographs by Frédéric Brenner, Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Fox Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, and Nick Waplington, This Place offers not a single, monolithic vision, but rather an intricate and fragmented portrait, alive to all the rifts and paradoxes of this important and much contested place.
