Man vs. Wild

Gohlke's photos have the Carter Accommodating Nature

Accommodating Nature: The Photographs of Frank Gohlke features works by the highly influential landscape photographer. While trying to accomplish the sweeping and uncluttered shots that are typical of landscape photographs, Gohlke discovered that it was difficult to show only nature without evidence of man. Telephone poles, in particular, were difficult to avoid. Stemming from this realization, Gohlke has gone on to photograph some of the most amazing juxtapositions of man and nature. From his grandparents' backyard in Texas, through the Midwest and onto a multi-year investigation of the effects of Mount St. Helens in 1980, the 85 prints of the exhibition form a mid-career retrospective of one of America's greatest artists. Accommodating Nature continues through January 6, 2008 at the Amon Carter Museum, 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd. in Fort Worth. Call 817-738-1933 or visit cartermuseum.org.
