How do aesthetics shape our understanding of ecological concerns?

Celebrating the “Earth” issue of Aperture magazine, this conversation will consider the role of photography in describing our relationship to the natural world, in a moment of grave concern for the environment. This panel will include Carolyn Drake, who was commissioned by Aperture to photograph the aftermath of the recent wildfires in Northern California; David Benjamin Sherry, whose recent highly saturated color images portray national parks that have been significantly reduced in size by the Trump administration; and Mary Mattingly, whose work explores the ways in which raw materials are mined in the name of geoengineering.

This event will be moderated by Eva Diaz, Associate Professor of the History of Art and Design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

This event is presented by Aperture Foundation and the Photography Programs of Parsons School of Design at The New School.
