Gary Metz: Quaking Aspen: A Lyric Complaint
In the 1970's, the late photographer and educator Gary Metz generated a significant body of work that was very much in the spirit of the times. Metz's Quaking Aspen: a Lyric Complaint challenged the first 100 years of landscape photography, which had placed a major emphasis on depicting nature as sublime, heroic, and unspoiled. Unlike previous photographers who glorified nature, Metz and his contemporaries wrenched photography out of the national parks and replaced the scenic with the vernacular of the everyday American landscape.
