PICTURING EDEN: THE GARDEN IN PHOTOGRAPHY


January 28–April 23

Opening reception January 27


George Eastman House, 900 East Avenue, Rochester, NY


Major exhibition of contemporary photographs, includes work of the Czech artist
Jiří Sigut.

The exhibit includes 160 photographs from approximately 40 artists representing 6 countries. Organized in four sections– Paradise Lost,  Paradise Reconstructed, Despairing of Paradise, and Paradise Anew – “Picturing Eden” will use photography and related media to explore the development and changing styles of the garden and concepts of paradise. By looking at the notion of paradise and the garden through the photographic lens, “Picturing Eden” will highlight original  lost innocence, the ongoing significance of

a humanistic, culturally charged environment, and its place in the history of art.

Eden or Paradise, that place of great or perfect happiness and satisfaction, is an ideal

that is still sought today. It resonates across time and cultures, charged with both political and environmental concerns. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view the work of contemporary photographers who examine the many facets of paradise, from a place of contemplation and restoration, to a site of loneliness and despair.
