Whether pastoral or polluted, the landscape has been an enduring subject in the history of photography. New Light on Land draws from the Museum's rich photography collection to explore how nature has inspired photographic innovation and creativity since the advent of the medium.
Presented as a companion to Edward Burtynsky: Water, this exhibition offers eclectic perspectives from environmentalist critiques to grand visions of the untrammeled earth.
This exhibition runs through May 15, 2016, and admission is free.
