Richard Misrach: On the Beach (American Perspectives Series)



For the past five years Richard Misrach, renowned color photographer of the desert, has worked on a series of pictures of beaches, the ocean, sunbathers, and swimmers. Dramatically scaled and shot from above, the photographs envelop the viewer with a strangely disorienting perspective and hint at the sublime.

This exhibition was organized by the Art Institute of Chicago. This exhibition is made possible by David Yurman and the Black Dog Fund.
