A Dialogue In Photographs - RECEPTION NOV 9TH
From a passionate desire to expand the conversation about climate change, environmental artists around the world are striving to harness the transformative power of art to promote awareness, provoke dialogue, and inspire action. As Dogwood Alliance mobilizes diverse voices to protect Southern forests, we are excited to be partnered with them to bring, A Dialogue in Photographs, to the photo+sphere festival.
Join us as we explore Southern forests and wetlands through the intimate photographs of Susan Patrice and Benjamin Dimmitt – two artists who have studied their surroundings and made a ritual of intimately interacting with their home environment. Patrice's work, The Enveloping Landscape, explores Pisgah National Forest’s lush woodland landscape amidst underpinnings of intimacy, vulnerability, and belonging, while Dimmitt’s work, An Unflinching Look, portrays the destructive effects of sea level rise on an estuary in his native Florida. A Dialogue in Photographs invites viewers to step into an intimate world where landscape images are revealed not as objects to be admired, but as intimate portraits of a sovereign and alive place waiting to be met, understood, cared for, and loved.
Friday, November 9, 4:00–6:00 pm
