DESCRIPTION

Eleven photographs document how artists use the camera to capture the sublime beauty and human destruction of the natural world. The exhibition brings together iconic works by Ansel Adams; contemporary examples by Edward Burtynsky, Lynn Davis, and Richard Misrach; and 19th-century pictures by Francis Frith and Carleton Watkins.
