The whole display serves one main goal and that is to capture the world and make people realize the impact we made so far up to this point in time.  The collection of photographs reflects some of the environmental issues that concern not only the artists and photographers from the exhibit but also each one of us.  The exhibit shows the effect of climate change, pollution, and the world’s present state of sustainability.  It is a wide display of both aerial and landscape photography.

Most of the photographs in the exhibit are collected from the Hood Museum’s collection of work from their “Museum Curating 101” students which started a few years back.  One of the organizers of the show, Katherine Hart said that they look at art as something that stimulates discussion and bridges across disciplines.

The “Looking Back at Earth: Contemporary Environmental Photography from the Hood Museum of Art’s Collection” will continue to be open for public viewing until August 26.
