Up & Upcoming to the South
Snow College Art Gallery UP: AnthroEcology: An Unfiltered Horizon, an exhibit of photographs by Megan Daniels, who has spent the last four summers as a wildland firefighter in Tooele County. Her works explore the interaction between the human race and the landscape, focusing on the horizon as point of collision, between land and sky. This liminal space is the often unconscious remnant of man's insatiable thirst for energy and progress. Taken over the course of two years, the images in this series portray the story of our horizon. They depict in its finest detail the constant process of cleansing and recontamination.|1|
