Photographs by Bremner Benedict

Bremner Benedict has been photographing her daughter moving from youth to maturity in settings that portray her on-going experience with the landscape.

 

“Today, we are involved in a vast cultural shift where our direct experience of nature is being replaced by a virtual one,” Benedict says. “How this ultimately will affect our society’s attitudes towards nature and its resources is a question for our modern era.”

 

“The arc of my daughter’s participation – from childlike fascination to wistful fantasy to disengagement – is a metaphor for society’s move away from identifying with nature,” she says. “It corresponds to our greater separation from the natural world.”

 

Benedict will informally talk about her work at the gallery opening on September 25, 2013.
