New Territory: Landscape Photography Today presents over 100 photographs by 40 contemporary photographers who take landscape as their subject. From the spectacular to the seemingly mundane, and from celebratory to critical, these artists surprise us with their often highly experimental approach to the medium. Their work reflects their perceptions of how we live in the world today, and how the choices we make now will shape the landscapes of the future. The traditional idea of landscape photography calls to mind mountains, meadows and coastlines. Today, “landscape” photography has grown to encompass scenes that show conflicts between cultures, or between nature and civilization, as well as inspiring views of wilderness. New Territory showcases artworks that look at these features and conflicts in new ways, and that challenge viewers to contemplate our complex relationship with the landscape.

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today is organized by the Denver Art Museum. It is generously funded by the Adolph Coors Exhibition Endowment Fund, donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Promotional support is provided by 5280 Magazine, CBS4, Comcast Spotlight, and The Denver Post.
