Wheeler, and his ongoing influence on landscape photography. More

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Mark Ruwedel

Friday, September 18, 2015 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

With grids of small gelatin silver prints hand-titled in graphite and arranged by type, Mark Ruwedel’s work straddles the line between documentation and conceptual art.

His photographs of the U.S. and Canadian West present landscapes marked by their human presence. These pictures reveal the histories of places that have been traversed, exploited, and built upon. Sometimes these marks are evident, other times they’re merely a trace, yet all show the West as a peopled landscape—even in its perceived desolation—and give evidence that human and natural histories are intertwined.
