Accommodating Nature: The Photographs of Frank Gohlke
Please join us this Friday, October 24, for a reception at 5:00p.m. and a discussion at 6:00p.m. with Frank Gohlke and Britt Salvesen, Director and Chief Curator.

Frank Gohlke (b. 1942), one of America’s leading landscape photographers, is Professor in the Photography Division, University of Arizona School of Art. 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.”
