Dual environmentally conscious exhibits.
The Chicago Botanic Garden is hosting two exhibits, "Remnants of Our Forest Past" and "Elements," featuring black-and-white photographs focusing on conservation, diversity and ecology issues, through April 3.
The exhibit, "Remnants of Our Forest Past" showcases works by Miles Lowry, a professor of photography at the College of DuPage. "Old growth forests are the remaining remnants of our forested past and the genetic banks from which our forest future will be drawn," says Lowry. "I am trying to capture their subtle diversity in order to redefine American landscape grandeur to include Eastern sites in addition to those icons from the West."
The second, "Elements," will feature black-and-white photographs of prairie burns in the Midwest by Jill Metcoff, who is a professional photographer specializing in rural landscape. "Controlled (prairie) burns encapsulate those ephemeral moments of possibility when the four elements (wind, fire, water and earth) interact, leaving us with a promise of continuity" says Metcoff.
