Environmental Exposure: Photography and Ecology after 1970

This exhibition draws on the Cantor’s collection of photography from the 1970s and early ’80s to explore a transformative moment in the representation of the American landscape. After the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970, American photography increasingly recast familiar spaces and themes—the natural world, the city, the home, the automobile—in light of growing anxieties around waste, energy use, pollution, and development. Approximately 25 works.
