William Wylie,Wall P16
One of our favorites …
William Wylie is an American photographer whose work explores the contemporary landscape. His favored medium is a large-format, 8" x 10" camera, which records a uniformly high level of detail and tone. Wylie works by establishing a relationship to a site through repeated visits and producing images that delve deeply into the interconnected natural and cultural history of these places. His past projects in the United States include documenting Colorado’s Cache la Poudre River (where he walked 150 miles from the mouth of the river on the eastern plains to its headwaters at the Continental Divide) and more recently, his 2010 project along the two-lane Route 36 as it cuts across Kansas. He also works extensively in Italy, where he has photographed the famous marble quarries of Carrara and the industrial landscapes of Tuscany and Rome.
He produced his newest series, This Heavy Veil, on view at Page Bond Gallery,October 4 thru October 30, while serving as the Doran Artist in Residency at the Sol and Carol LeWitt compound in Praiano, Italy.
