A few years ago I became convinced that the so-called “turning-point” of global warming had already been passed. Today that point is receding in our collective rearview mirror at an ever-alarming rate as virtually nothing is being done to counter the effects of climate change. I felt like I should use my art to say something about this, but instead of making the usual dramatic photographs of the dire results of global warming that we are already experiencing—more frequent and violent storms, floods, drought, etc.—I chose instead to focus not on what we have lost, but on what we have to lose. I am reminded of Carl Sagan’s vision of the earth as a “pale blue dot,” the only home we will ever have. All of the photographs in this show were made in Nebraska, my home state and maybe yours as well. They are quiet images, reflections on the simple beauty of this place in which we live. This is our home, the place where we live out our lives. This is what we have to lose. Roger Bruhn Artist RECEPTION 04/02/2021 - 5:00pm EAST GALLERY April 2021 to May 2021 MEDIUM Photography
