DESCRIPTION

Lewis Koch uses photography, assemblage, and text to engage in a critical response to contemporary life and politics. Bomber: A Chance Unwinding bears witness to a World War II bomber crash site above tree-line in Wyoming's Cloud Peak Wilderness, a remote area that Koch describes as "almost inconceivably stark and humbling." Linking his own photographs of the site with vintage film stills, details of period maps, and poetry, this work is a reflection on a particular tragedy as well as a metaphor for war and environmental destruction.
