In a time of rampant natural disasters and urgent concerns about global environmental change, this book, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name, demonstrates the ways in which the most interesting and engaging contemporary artists view the natural world. Shattering the stereotypes of landscape and nature photography, the thirty international artists included in this survey boldly examine new concepts of the natural sphere occasioned by twenty-first century technologies; images of destructive ecological engagement; and visions of our future interactions with the environment. Considering nature in the broadest sense, this book reflects new perspectives on the planet that sustains, enchants, and - increasingly - frightens us.
