Victoria Sambunaris has traversed and documented the vast United States landscape for more than a decade, viewing the intersection of geology, industry and culture, as both a record and a metaphor for the American experience.

In Taxonomy of a Landscape, forty-one of the artist’s large-scale photographs reveal the mystery and unease of a country where human intervention and natural beauty inspire wonder in equal measure, while additional materials – video, books, maps, mineral specimens, journals, road logs and photographic sketches – provide an intimate view of the artist’s life and work on the road.
