Nick Brandt: Inherit the Dust
On view through September 8, 2019
Sonoma Valley Museum of Art
Sonoma, California

Photographer Nick Brandt, famous for his portraits of Africa’s most majestic and vanishing animals, presents a series of epic panoramic landscapes in “Inherit the Dust.” In this series of photographs and book, he records the impact of man in places in East Africa where animals used to roam, but no longer do. In each location, life size panels of his animal portraits are placed within a world of explosive urban development, factories, wasteland, and quarries.
