Denver photographer Evan Anderman’s experience as a geologist and pilot has greatly informed his photography. Using the Colorado landscape as his primary subject, Anderman’s work explores our relationship with and impact on the natural landscape, addressing issues that arise from land use for everything from agriculture and ranching to suburban sprawl and exploitation of natural resources. He explores these ideas through both abstract and representational compositions created from ground level and bird’s eye views highlighting the natural, the man-made and the juxtaposition of the two.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Lecture tickets are $5 for students, DAM members and CPAC members, $12 for general admission.
The 2019 Month of Photography Lecture series will spotlight Colorado photographers from our local creative community. Sponsored by the DAM Photography Department and funding generously provided by the Cooke-Daniels Fund.
