Lot description
Always having an interest in the deserts of the American Southwest and the human influence that has been placed upon them, Richard Misrach went on to apply this passion to the culture and landscape of Egypt. Having made his first and only trip in 1989, Misrach executed a series of images which explored the ancient pyramids created by the hands of man and their affect on the landscape, as well as nature’s affect on them as time has worn down their once smooth walls.

Work is in a museum quality frame and was acquired directly from the Friends of Photography the year it was printed.

Born in Los Angeles, California in 1949, photographer Richard Misrach has always been fascinated by the beautiful landscapes that surround him. However, his photography focuses more intently on humankind’s ability to transform and affect the landscapes that surround us, exploring the relationship between society and nature. Misrach has received numerous awards including two National Endowment for the Arts Awards, a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, and recently the Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fine Art Photography. His artwork is featured in more than fifty major museum collections and has recently had solo exhibitions held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, CA), the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago, IL).
