Exhibition Reception: American West


Thursday, June 27, 2019, 5:00pm to 7:00pm


Harvard Ed Portal, 224 Western Ave., Allston

Photographer, Northeastern University professor emeritus, and former Harvard section leader Neal Rantoul presents a reflection on the present-day American West through images of the Utah desert and the Paradise, California Camp Fire aftermath. Together, these two landscapes show the West as both an inspiration for classical landscape photography and the site of human and environmental devastation. American West makes clear how the environment of the former American frontier now faces serious threats to its long-term survival.
