Based in Los Angeles, where these images were made, Mark Ruwedel has been photographing the North American landscape for over 30 years. A prolific photographer who visits the same places and subjects again and again over extended periods of time, Ruwedel says of his approach: “I have come to think of the land as being an enormous historical archive; as a whole, the work explores the relationships of the social, technological and cultural with the natural world.”
Mark Ruwedel’s work is widely exhibited in the United States and abroad. It is held within the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Tate Modern, London; and National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, among many others. He is a Guggenheim Fellow (2014) and a recipient of the Scotiabank Photography Award.
