“Landscape and Lens: The West Photographed,” reveals the varied approaches modern photographers have taken toward landscape in the West. Drawn from the more than 150 photographs in the Phoenix Municipal Art Collection, the exhibit features 28 works by American photographers, such as Robert Adams, Paul Caponigro, William Clift, Chris Colville, Byron Darby, Lee Friedlander, Emmet Gowin, Mark Klett, Skeet McAuley, Anne Noggle, Aaron Siskind, Joel Sternfeld and others. The works date from the late 1940s through the present. Their subjects range from depictions of the luminous beauty of light and landforms that have long attracted photographers and other artists to the West, to examinations of the increasing human role and impact on the landscape. The images, in black-and-white and color, represent a variety of traditional and digital photographic printing methods.
