DIANE TUFT GONDWANA: IMAGES OF AN ANCIENT LAND ON VIEW JU N E 4- JU LY 3, 2014 OPEN IN G R ECEPTION : WEDN ESDAY, JU N E 4 , 6 - 8 PM

In 2012, a grant from the National Science Foundation brought photographer Diane Tuft to Antarctica for six weeks. The resulting series of photographs captures the dramatic natural landscape of this remote and ancient continent. Details of ice and rock are distilled into stunning forms for the viewer to consider anew. The photographs are both visual and scientific studies, conveying the subtle and violent atmospheric changes registered on the Antarctic landscape over millions of years. Tuft’s rich color photographs capture the high levels of ultraviolet light in Antarctica, thereby exposing the visual effect of years of climate change. These works are available as color pigment prints in three sizes, each an edition of five. The black and white photographs, shot on infrared film, are presented as platinum prints and are available in two sizes, each an edition of five.
