American Art Museum
8th and F Streets, NW
Location: 2nd Floor, Southeast, Graphics Gallery
On view are more than 40 photographs by Barbara Bosworth (b.1953), including The Bitterroot River, a series that deals with loss and recovery, and recent color photographs of songbirds and the New England landscape surrounding her home near Boston, Massachusetts. Bosworth combines multiple large-format negatives in a single print to create her panoramic images and landscape photographs. She is best known for her photographs of National Champion trees -- the largest identified example of each species in the United States. While her subjects appear direct and straightforward, her images are notable for their grace and emotional resonance.
