with Mark Wonsidler, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions
Join us for a guided tour of the exhibition Nick Brandt: Enivornmental Photographer.
RSVP to reserve your spot on the tour here.
This exhibition presents works from two of Nick Brandt’s series, Inherit the Dust and This Empty World. Through his photographs, Brandt creates a vision of environmental devastation, with both human and animal victims suffering in the aftermath of progress. Brandt envisions a world overwhelmed by development, where there is no longer space for animals to survive.
About Nick Brandt
Nick Brandt (born 1964) is an English photographer, whose work focuses on the rapidly disappearing natural world, as a result of environmental destruction, climate change and human actions. Raised in London, Brandt studied painting and then film at Saint Martin's School of Art. He moved to California in 1992 where he directed numerous award-winning music videos for artists including Michael Jackson, Moby, Jewel, and XTC among others. In 1995 while directing Jackson’s "Earth Song" in Tanzania, Brandt first encountered the animals and landscape that would later inspire him to address the global ecological crisis through innovative photographic strategies in works like Inherit the Dust and This Empty World.
