LANDMARK: Yosemite Through the Lens of Contemporary Landscape Photography

Artists: Binh Danh, Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe, Ted Orland, Millee Tibbs, and Jerry Uelsmann

Landscape photography is uniquely wedded to the National Parks, and to Yosemite in particular. Many of our nation’s most famous photographers have storied relationships with Yosemite – their work not only celebrates and shares the landscape’s grandeur, but also examines our relationship to wilderness and conservation. The contemporary artists selected for this exhibition bring new representation and varied voices to the genre of landscape photography, strengthening the rich relationship between the medium and Yosemite, while also blazing new conceptual and technical ground with their work.

In alignment with the National Park Service’s mission to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation widely, LANDMARK will be exhibited along the well-traveled corridor between Yosemite and the Bay Area, creating a link between rural and urban populations that are geographically, socially, and economically connected to Yosemite.

This exhibition celebrates the centennial of the National Park Service and looks ahead to the next century as it continues to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.
