Joseph Bellows Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Wayne
Gudmundson: Trees of Burgundy. This exhibition will open on November 7th
and continue through December 23rd, 2015. A reception for the artist will be held
on Saturday, November 7th, from 6 – 8 pm. Accompanying and complementing
￼this solo exhibition will be a group themed show, entitled Regarding Trees. It
￼will feature a remarkable collection of both vintage and contemporary tree images
￼by a selection of the medium’s most celebrated photographers.
In the exhibition Trees of Burgundy, Gudmundson depicts the beauty of the
French countryside through observing the tree-lined roads within Saizy, a small
farming community in the Burgundy region of France. In his eloquently organized
photographs, he shows the viewer how these trees interact with, and in some
measure create the landscape to which they belong; a richly layered landscape that
suggests the possibility of narrative, real or imagined.
Wayne Gudmundson is a highly regarded photographer whose work has been
written about by such luminaries in the field as Robert Adams, Ben Lifson, and
Frank Gohlke. His photographs have been featured in numerous books including
his 2007 monograph, A Considered View: The Photographs of Wayne
￼Gudmundson’s photographs are in several prominent collections, including: the
￼Museum of Modern Art, Center for Creative Photography, Plains Art Museum, and
￼the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Serving as a counterpart to Gudmundson’s exhibition, Regarding Trees will
comprise a diverse survey of exceptional tree photographs. The exhibition presents
vintage and contemporary works that encompass many styles and processes of
picture making. It will feature photographs by: Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Paul
Caponigro, John Szarkowski, Barbara Bosworth, Gregory Conniff, Linda Connor,
Koichiro Kurita, Ben Nixon, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Rhondal Mckinney, Tom
Zetterstrom and others.
