Mark Klett

Mark Klett, Under the Dark Cloth, Monument Valley (1989), gelatin silver print

Photo-eye Gallery, 541 S. Guadalupe St., 505-988-5152, photoeye.com

Geologist turned photographer Mark Klett explores the relationship between time, change, and perception, and the interaction of man and the environment. His work recalls the late-19th-century expeditionary photographers, such as Timothy O’Sullivan. Rather than focus on the pristine landscapes of the American West, Klett includes human elements in his photographs, including the evidence of man: a foot jutting into the picture frame or a human shadow. Klett’s work is informed as much by the history and changes in the medium of photography itself as he is in shifting landscapes. Seeing Time, an solo exhibition of Klett’s photographs, is available online through July 28 at photoeye.com/seeingtime. The exhibition is the first in a series of online Photo-eye shows made using the website builder Visual Server X.
