The photographs in Field of Vision show how landscape continues to be a subject artists turn to when contem-plating the world around us—from the places we live, where we travel, and what we aspire to see. Since the medium was invented in the 19th century, photographers have approached landscape in many different ways. Early examples generally mimicked landscape paintings in terms of composition and theme but artists quickly realized the unending potential for creative expression. While some focus on land unaltered by the human element, others see this interaction between humans and nature as a fundamental part of their narrative. Photographers also consider if they want to capture the scene in a realistic, or objective manner or if they want to manipulate the composition to create abstraction. This exhibition includes sixteen photographs that illustrate the diverse ways artists approach the subject of landscape.
