Technological developments and the rapidly changing climate have fundamentally altered our relationship to nature. Photography enables us to observe this world more closely than ever before, and testifies to the effects of our existence in it. But can it also function as a catalyst for alternative ways of engaging with the environment?
ABOUT ON EARTH
On Earth brings together the work of 26 contemporary artists who use innovative imaging strategies to reflect on the evolving relationship between humans and nature. Following in the footsteps of the iconic landscape photographers of the nineteenth century, this new generation of artists uses modern visual technologies that increasingly pervade how we relate to the world: often electronically, and mediated by our digital screens. The exhibition On Earth is on show at Foam from 20 March until 2 September 2020.
