Description - The Burn by Associate Director and Chief Curator Deborah Gribbon
This photo series begun when the artist observed a controlled prairie burn. Jane Fulton Alt shows the diverse elements of the burn--the mysterious luminosity, the smoke that both obscures and reveals. She says, "I was immediately struck by the burn's visual and expressive potential, as well as the way it evoked themes that are at the core of my photographic work--the moment when life and death are not contradictory but are perceived as as a single process."Jane Fulton Alt is a fine art photographer whose work is in numerous American museums and collections.
