"In recent years, an admonishing view has emerged in an ordinarily bland genre,
the photography of nature. One glance at the field tells us that ecological concerns, understandably
enough at this historical point, have infiltrated the medium. How can they be expressed effectively?
How can they be responded to? What do they tell us about our culture?"
"Landscape photographers who want to make a statement about the deadening of the environment find that
their own medium puts them into a quandry. They must steel themselves against ingratiation while somehow
affirming the value of their abused subject."
