EMMET GOWIN: Here on Earth Now Notes from the Field
September 28, 2017 – January 6, 2018

Opening reception: Thursday, September 28, 5:30 – 7:30 PM

“For six decades, Emmet Gowin has contemplated humanity’s relationship to the natural world with visual wonderment. His pictures have evolved from intimate portraits of his Virginia family, to aerial vistas of volcanic devastation and nuclear test sites, to scientific surveys of tropical ecosystems and their dependent biodiversity. Though varied, Gowin’s subjects remain united by a celebration of place and are permeated by the enduring presence — whether literal or figurative — of his wife and muse, Edith. The featured images are therefore a natural continuation of his earlier work, Mariposas Nocturnas – Edith in Panama, presented by Pace/MacGill as both an exhibition and catalogue in 2006, as well as a companion to Gowin’s recent monograph, Mariposas Nocturnas: Moths of Central and South America, A Study in Beauty and Diversity, published by Princeton University Press this fall.”
