Brett Van Ort: Minescape
30 color photographs
Brett Van Ort's photographs of landmines, prosthetic limbs and landscapes of Bosnia paint an ambiguous portrait of human technology as it variously maims or heals. Through it all the natural world remains edenic, its perils hidden from view. As Van Ort states, “these pieces show the regenerative power of nature and human beings’ insatiable appetite to expand, explore, conquer and transform nature into civility."
