For a detailed schedule please visit: http://www.fotoweekdc.org. DESCRIPTION "What Lies Beneath: Nature and Urban Landscape in EU Photography," curated by Judith Turner-Yamamoto, features exciting and challenging new work in landscape photography by 20 renowned and emerging European fine art photographers. They look beyond mere observation to explore how our presence and built environments intersect and impact the natural world. These images ask us to take a second look, whether at the familiar or the sublime, and to discover the unexpected and the sometimes incongruous in how we live now. The works resonate with references to a human presence that is felt if not seen. Space is not only described but mysteriously enlivened, evoking emotional rather than rational responses to become meditations on place. Exhibition photographers are Olaf Otto Becker, Karin Borghouts, Elina Brotherus, Iñigo Calles Oyarbide, Lotte Fløe Christensen, Argyro Christodoulou, Denise Grunstein, Annika Haas, Josef Hoflehner, Vassilis Makris, Peter Koštrun, Alena Kotzmannova, Selene Lazzarini, Edgar Martins, Dara McGrath, Serban Mestecaneanu, Simon Roberts, Alnis Stakle, Artur Wesolowski, and Edwin Zwakman. A harbinger of FotoWeek DC, the exhibition launches on November 7th.
