September 11 - October 27, 2013
For the past 4 years, Noah Wilson has traversed the country photographing locations where environmental disasters have occurred as well as places where sustainable methods of land use have been put into action. The results are a series of unassuming, yet haunting, black-and-white landscape photographs, each with an accompanying text.
Wisely eschewing pat political tropes, Wilson's broad approach to both the worst and the best of humankind's impact on the natural environment, affords his project a more balanced and realistic reading. While there are corporate and governmental interests in natural resources that inflict great harm on the environment, there also exist forms of affordable, ethical, and smart alternatives.
Exhibited here is a small selection from the series, spanning the continental United States from California to Virginia. For more information on this and other projects by Wilson, please visit: www.noahmwilson.com
