Landscape #136, 1987
“Landscape 136, 1987” is a sumptuous photograph—the intersecting hillside slopes, the luminous, almost pointillist evocation of the fertile fields, the parenthesis of the dark tree in the foreground and its pale counterpart in the background seem framed as an ode to 19th-century impressionist painting, as well as a friendly bow to Carleton Watkins, particularly that photographer’s fascination with trees in the Sierras, valleys and the northwest coast of the early West.
