Force of Nature: Emmet Gowin in the American West
October 10, 2015 – January 17, 2016
Passionate about the world surrounding him, Emmet Gowin has photographed aspects of nature—from tiny insects to expansive aerial views of the landscape—for more than forty years. Force of Nature features Gowin’s photographs of Mount St. Helens, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, and the Nevada Test Site nuclear grounds. Together, these images trace nature’s unpredictable power and humanity’s own forceful manipulation of the American West.
Organized by the Portland Art Museum and curated by Julia Dolan, Ph.D., The Minor White Curator of Photography.
