Book Release: The Altered Landscape: Photographs of a Changing Environment

Commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Nevada Museum of Art, The Altered Landscape exhibition celebrates the institution’s signature photography collection that examines human interaction and intervention with the environment. The thirty-year span of The Altered Landscape begins with the work of the New Topographics photographers, including Robert Adams, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, and Lewis Baltz. Alongside these pioneering photographers are contemporary works by artists including Mark Klett, Patrick Nagatani, John Pfahl, Jim Sanborn, Sharon Stewart, Amy Stein, and Fandra Chang.

The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive, 288-page deluxe publication published by New York-based Skira Rizzoli that examines the collection’s roots in the 1970s New Topographics movement and highlights recent photographic acquisitions in this rapidly changing field. Edited by Ann M. Wolfe, Curator of Exhibitions, Nevada Museum of Art, the book is internationally distributed by Random House. Support for this publication is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.
