Looking at the Land

I first started chatting to Andy Adams some months ago. Andy produces online photography website FlakPhoto.com which has fast become one of the defining resources for contemporary photography online.

In collaboration with the Rhode Island School of Design exhibition America in View: Landscape Photography 1865 to Now, Andy has curated an accompanying online exhibition Looking at the Land – 21st Century American Views. I’ve returned to the selected photographs and interviews here regularly, in addition to press coverage such as Time magazine’s Lightbox. Personal favourites among the selected works include Kate Peter’s Plane, Las Vegas Nevada, 2007, Christine Carr’s Roanoke, Virginia, 2005, and Rebecca Norris Webb’s Badlands, South Dakota, 2010 from her deeply contemplative book My Dakota.

I admire how projects such as Looking at the Land are currently challenging traditional notions of exhibiting photography, and essential reading from the last few days on this subject has included Joerg Colberg and Oliver Laurent’s report on Magnum Photos‘s new direction online.
