Midwestern Landscapes Addendum

Last week I wrote about the allure of the Midwestern landscape as well as some works of art that recreate those landscapes. It occurs to me that I made a major omission by not mentioning the work of contemporary photographer Terry Evans. Her photographs embrace the grand scale of the Midwest, often using an aerial viewpoint that truly captures the vastness and general mood of the landscape. What I find so appealing about her work is that she captures the specific details of a topography–a sort of geographical portrait–while also creating works of formal beauty that verge on abstraction. I especially like her “Inhabited Prairie” project. Visit her website to see more of her work.
