Ravaged Sublime: Landscape Photography in the 21st Century (Dayton, Ohio)

October 15, 2016 - January 8, 2017

The Dayton Art Institute is organizing an innovative exhibition year in 2016 centering on the theme of the classical elements — fire, air, water, earth and ether — with an emphasis on unique viewer interactions and immersive experiences.

Ravaged Sublime: Landscape Photography in the 21st Century
October 15, 2016–January 8, 2017
The year of the elements concludes with Ravaged Sublime: Landscape Photography in the 21st Century. Showcasing the work of contemporary photographers Edward Burtynsky and Richard Mosse, the exhibition reveals the continued interest in sublime landscapes, but with a shift in artist intent and tone. Utilizing similar visual techniques as nineteenth-century landscape photographers, these large-scale photographs demonstrate the tantalizing draw we still have towards landscape imagery while showing human traces and impact via industrial expansion and conflict that ravage these landscapes.
