ABOUT THE ARTWORK


With a career spanning over four decades, Mark Klett has advanced a new notion of landscape photography, one that reframes our idea of what “pictures of the land” can mean. His projects explore relationships between time, change and perception while exploring the language of photographic media as it evolves technologically.

Influenced by late nineteenth-century expeditionary photographers, including Timothy O'Sullivan, Mark Klett visually explores the contemporary versions of these landscapes and the marks left on them by humankind, whether it be the lights of a city, a hat, foot or shadow jutting into the frame, or debris/artifacts left behind by ancient or modern passers-by. Primarily working in the Southwestern deserts, Klett neither laments the peopling of the landscape, nor attempts to visually preserve the last of the pristine landscape of the American West. Rather, he explores the inevitable interaction of culture and habitat.
