Photographer and Assistant Professor Jeremiah Ariaz’s work is currently on display in the group show, “No Place in Particular: Images of the American Landscape” at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida.
The exhibition investigates the visual, societal, and ecological consequences of postwar development, as the participating photographers reveal the ordinary in a manner that encourages contemplation of modern land-use practices and the particulars of place. The photographs included depict landscapes modified to accommodate suburban sprawl and poorly planned development that has eroded the character of the American landscape such that it has become difficult to distinguish one place from the next. Also on display at MOCA is the seminal photography series “Tulsa,” by Larry Clark, and “Shared Vision” featuring the work of historically renowned photographers including Walker Evans, Alec Soth, and Sally Mann, among others.
The show will remain open through November 6 with an opening reception on Friday, September 16, 6:00-9:00 p.m. as part of PhotoJax, the Jacksonville Photography Festival. For more information about the festival, visit www.photojax.org
