DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with the Michael Light exhibition, the gallery will present a series of photographs by Marc Valesella entitled Not Negotiable.  The title refers to a statement made by then President George H.W. Bush during a 1992 Earth Summit.  When asked why he was resistant to making changes that could help the environment, the President replied that the American way of life is “not negotiable.”  Valesella’s black and white 20x24” photographs, made with an 8x10” camera, document dark and desolate landscapes of Southern California that have been ravaged by wildfires in an era of repeated annual droughts and some of most devastating fires on record.
