Artist Spotlight: Edie Winograde
Edie Winograde's ongoing photographic series entitled Place and Time: Reenactment Pageant.  represent both present-day reenactments and the historical events such as Custer's Last Stand or the expeditionary route of Lewis and Clark.  The reenactment participants act out these events incorporating exacting standards of authenticity. Place and Time blurs the boundaries between then and now.  The reenactments Winograde is most interested in take place on the original site, "underscoring my belief that history itself is part of our experience of landscape." She emphasizes the grand presence of landscape through large scale and panoramic formats in many of her brilliant color photographs. These expansive landscapes anchor scenes in which the blurred action of pioneers, Native Americans, soldiers, and horses seems as ephemeral as memory itself. Winograde's work can be seen in The Reality of Fiction, at Redline Art Center, curated by Mark Sink for Denver's Month of Photography.
