January 15th, Phoenix: “Wilderness: A Journey with Debra Bloomfield”

Phoenix Art Museum  
Wilderness: A Journey with Debra Bloomfield
Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.

Debra Bloomfield will present her newest monograph, Wilderness, photographed over the past five years. The artist will discuss the process of developing this body of work, in which she found inspiration in the life work of conservation movement leaders, notably Margaret Murie. Her travels to southeastern Alaska deepened her “understanding of the importance of continued preservation of wild places.” Bloomfield has worked in the landscape for 35 years, and her poetic large-scale color photographs focus on the relationship between interiority and the external world, questioning how we use and misuse our land. In 2007, Bloomfield began incorporating field recordings into her working methodology. Turning to an unknown terrain, she immersed herself in the landscape, purposely repeating her movement through the seasons with a contemplative stance.”

In conjunction with the exhibition See, Hear, Feel: The Photographs of Debra Bloomfield and Christopher Churchill.  On view until March 23, 2014.

This lecture is presented by INFOCUS.
