Mark Ruwedel: Written on the Land
January 24, 2004 - March 21, 2004
Mark Ruwedel’s Written on the Land explores the effect our cultures and their technologies have on the natural environment. He has photographed a variety of remote North American landscapes, revealing overlooked or barely visible historical traces of human activity.
The exhibition is organized into three sections: The Ice Age, Westward the Course of Empire, and Pictures of Hell. Mark Ruwedel is an American photographer who has lived in Canada for the past twenty years. He currently divides his time between Vancouver and Los Angeles, where he teaches photography at the California State University at Long Beach.
