Photograph by Victoria Sambunaris
Victoria Sambunaris‘s photography is obsessed with the American landscape. Over the past decade, Sambunaris and her large format camera have traversed the country by car on what she describes as “seemingly every road, parkway, thruway, highway, freeway and turnpike between the coasts and beyond.” Her journey has produced spectacular imagery and a diverse body of work that contrasts geology and industry, and highlights her curiosity with man’s exploration and intrusion in nature. Her body of work, The Border focuses on the U.S.-Mexican border and is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Photo in Chicago. (with a public reception and lecture February 7th — 5-7pm)
