As part of AIPAD's special events, Rick will be moderating a conversation at the Park Avenue Armory in the Veteran's Room on Saturday 20th at 12pm:
New Topographics: Landscape Photography Then and Now
The 1975 exhibition, New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape, signaled the emergence of a new approach to landscape photography emulated by generations of photographers. A new version of this seminal exhibition is currently touring eight international venues. This discussion will focus on the impact of both exhibitions and the role of landscape photography today.
