This is a Flak Photo project --an online collaboration between Andy Adams and Jan Howard at the RISD Museum. The Art Rhode Island School of Design Museum's exhibitionis an overview of the style and approach photographers have brought to their interpretations of the land over the past 150 years. The RISD commissioned FlakPhoto.com creator Andy Adams to curate a digital projection of 21st-century American landscape views, complementing the Museum's America in View exhibition.
Flak Photo acknowledges that ours is a digitally networked photo culture, so the Web played a significant role in its creation and execution. The focus of the online exhibition is on current practice in landscape picture-making. "Landscape" includes urbanscape:
Catlin Teal Price, Overpass, Las Vegas, Nevada, 2010 from the Annabelle Annabelle series.
This is close to being architectural--it is making brutalism beautiful.
