This Fragile Earth

Our Fragile Earth simmered into worrisome new territory this year. Two new companion exhibits feature a wide range of photographs documenting the grandeur of nature and majestic landscapes alongside images illustrating devastation caused by environmental neglect and the effects of a changing climate across our Fragile Earth. Just as photographs illustrating the transformative experiences of nature have been instrumental in promoting the cause of environmental conservation, photographs from recent climate events can raise awareness about global warming, channeling it into hope and into collective action. This exhibit informs in the hope the images motivate awareness and change

Special Virtual Exhibition  Stephen Wilkes: This Fragile Earth Day To Night - follow this link.

Over the last decade, Wilkes has observed endangered species and habitats around the world, using a photographic technique that captures the passage of time, from day to night, all within a single image.

On Thursday, November 30, Stephen Wilkes presented a Gallery talk on his documentation of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and his Day To Night photographs of endangered species and habitats. Watch the presentation here.

Exhibitions continue through January 21, 2024
