First day at Artsy. I’ve joined to engineering team. Intense. Great.
I spent possibly forever this morning going through the photographs in the show “Looking at the Land.” Organized by Andy Adams, the show includes work by several artists whose work I’ve long admired—Jesse Chehak, Ian Baguskas, Justin James Reed and Ryan Boatright—and quite a few I’m stoked to discover for the first time.
Excerpted from the project statement:
Looking at the Land is about more than the pictures it presents; it’s about the ideas and experiences that move the people who made them. Many of these artists have been formally trained. Some are self-taught. All of them are impacted by popular culture and a deep awareness of the history of the landscape art tradition. These are 21st century photographic views; they’re also personal perspectives that illustrate current practice in landscape picture-making. Understanding the things that influence these photographers is key to learning how their tradition is evolving.
