David Nadel: Burns II
Sasha Wolf Gallery - January 16th, 2013
Sasha Wolf Gallery presents Burns II–a solo exhibition of photographer David Nadel.
Nadel has spent the last four winters hiking up the trail-less terrains of Northwest Montana, photographing the remains of burned down forests. Nadel captures the lonely and devastating winter landscape from the Swan, to the Apgar, and Whitefish ranges. Where a dense, green forest landscape once existed all that is left is a desolate and barren monument to nature.
Burns II features 11 color photographs that appear, on first glance, like black and white Charcoal drawing. Their panoramic viewpoint reveals a stark contrast between barren trees and pure white blanket of snow.
David Nadel’s Burns II is on view at the Sasha Wolf Gallery from now until March 10.
