“Brett Van Ort’s photographs of meadows and towns nestled in cradles of foliage verge on Disney-like. But the title of the project, “Minescape,” betrays the sinister side of the story.", - The Washington Post, April 4, 2011
“Brett Van Ort’s landscapes are majestic indeed but enlaced with an overwhelming sense of tragedy.”, - Feature Shoot, October 21, 2013
Brett Van Ort's photographs of landmines, prosthetic limbs, and Bosnian landscapes paint an ambiguous portrait of human technology as it variously maims and 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."
