Accommodating Nature: The Photographs of Frank Gohlke
Frank Gohlke (b. 1942) is one of America’s leading landscape photographers. For more than thirty years, he has taken photographs that depict how Americans build their lives within a natural world that rarely matches the pastoral ideal. Whether photographing vast spaces of the Midwest punctuated by grain elevators, the close confines of the Sudbury River in Massachusetts, or the aftermath of the 1980 volcanic eruption of Washington State’s Mount St. Helens, Gohlke draws attention to the boundaries between humanity and nature.
