Seeing the Forests and the Trees: Winifred Helton-Harmon

Feb 2 - Apr 7, 2018

Curated by Ricardo Viera

 

Join us in the Gerry Lenfest Gallery for a multi-media installation by photographer Winifred Helton-Harmon. Curated by Ricardo Viera, Professor of Art at Lehigh University and Director of Lehigh University Arts Galleries, Seeing the Forests and the Trees brings together large-scale photographic prints, sculptures, sounds, and videography to create an immersive experience for visitors. The exhibition juxtaposes photographs of living forests with devastation of woodlands caused by clearcutting - the forestry practice that first galvanized her work as a nature photographer. Her intellectual landscapes push visitors to confront the process of degradation in the natural world.
