NPR’s “The Picture Show” takes a look at the state of landscape photography in 2012. Like everyone else, I’ve been a worshipper of the 1975 New Topographics exhibition. Are we ready for re-examination of our concept of the landscape?
What about virtual landscapes? Do we now consider the “landscape” beyond our physical world?
Not sure what the answers are, but Christine Carr’s photo (above) is beyond landscape … it’s beyond wonderful. The “once and never again” happenstance of street photo meets the banal, flat landscape of suburbia / office park / Nowheresvile, USA.
