Mark Klett - Artifacts of the Southwest

von 05.05.1997 bis 07.06.1997
Cactus carved by gunfire, Tucson, 1990

 
For more than a decade, Klett has been photographing throughout the American Southwest, primarily in Arizona and Utah. His photographs of ancient ruins, plywood teepee tourist attractions, or sprawling desert cities are evidence of the variety of peoples and cultures who have explored and settled this rugged and spectacular landscape. Rather than seeing landscape and nature as completely separate from human activity or as a resource to be exploited by man, Klett sees people as part of the natural landscape.

Klett's photographs examine the way in which people have occupied and experienced this land, as well as the evidence they have left of their presence. At the same time they question how this human presence has changed the landscape and what this might mean for the future.

The exhibited works include 24 black and white, gelatin silver prints (40cm X 50cm) and 12 color works, photographed using conventional camera techniques but presented using digital enlargement techniques: 8 of which are Evercolor prints (66cm X 54cm) and 4 of which are Iris ink-jet prints (112cm X 89cm). An essay by Andrew Phelps accompanies the exhibit.

Mark Klett is a professor at Arizona State University, with which the Cultural Ministry of the Province of Salzburg conducts an exchange program for photographic artists.
