"Focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image, the exhibition América Latina 1960-2013 reveals the extraordinary diversity of photographic practices employed by numerous Latin American artists over the past fifty years, a period marked by great political, economic, and social instability. During this period, many artists combined in their work text and the photographic image, using a wide range of media such as silkscreen, collage, performance, and video. This provided them with an effective way of communicating in times of political urgency and also allowed them to explore ideas related to territory, memory, and identity. Including a selection of around five hundred works, the exhibition América Latina 1960-2013 and its accompanying catalog provide the visitor with the opportunity to delve into the history of the continent and reveal the specificity and great diversity of artistic practices in the region"--P.

Preface -- Introduction -- Sublime -- Pastoral -- Artefacts -- Rupture -- Playground -- Scar -- Control -- Enigma -- Hallucination -- Reverie -- Artists' voices / Compiled by Holly Roussell.
Landscape photography has traveled far from its origins in the picturesque or pastoral. It is at the cutting edge of contemporary image-making with leading photographers creating work that transcends definitions of art or documentary. This is the first truly international survey of a vibrant, burgeoning field of photography, its masterful image-makers, and their work. William A. Ewing has selected more than 230 photographs by over 100 photographers, ranging from renowned figures such as Susan Derges, Edward Burtynsky, and Simon Norfolk, to younger rising stars including Pieter Hugo, Olaf Otto Becker, and Penelope Umbrico. Each of them represents an individual viewpoint of a shared concernfor our changing landscape and environment. Organized into ten themes Sublime; Pastoral; Artefacts; Rupture; Playground; Scar; Control; Enigma; Hallucination; and Reverie Landmark is an intelligent and poetic survey which captures a genre of photography to perfection."
