Historical Landscapes: South African Environments Through the Lens
Photographer Meghan Kirkwood brings images of an arid grassland region in South Africa to Northwest Art Center viewers in “Historical Landscapes: South African Environments Through the Lens,”
“Nestled beneath the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains this temperate landscape forms a unique biome that is filled with aloes and rare cycads,” writes Kirkwood in a description of her subject.
Using traditional analog photography, the selective focus capabilities of a large format camera, and double exposures, Kirkwood directs her viewers “to perceive the landscape as a dynamic character who is constantly changing in response to climate and other disturbances.
“I aim to portray the landscapes in context, as one environmental phase that evolves and transforms into another,” said Kirkwood.
