Todd Stewart "Photographs from A Narrative Atlas of the Great Basin"

image_pdfimage_print

Landscapes are constructs. They are derived from the complex layering of a particular physical geography with the cultural, political, and other ideological concerns of those that inhabit them. Because they represent an accumulation of human activity over time, their meaning is contingent upon, and reflective of, both historical and contemporary values. A Narrative Atlas of the Great Basin seeks to reveal the multilayered conception of a vast region of the American landscape. Focusing primarily on the arid lands of the Great Basin, the Atlas functions as a framework for a series of smaller projects exploring the relationship between nature and culture.
