Lane Barden: “Long Beach” signed print. Award-winning photographer Lane Barden’s Riverwork is a series of digitally altered photographs of the Los Angeles River, a natural river converted in the mid-twentieth century to drainage infrastructure. The work explores industrial archetypes that belong to the 20th Century, the height of a paradigm when managing the environment was an act of power to overcome the destructive forces of nature (flooding) by using concrete to dominate the ecosystem.
The digital process breaks down the structure of the photograph to create a damaged image, one that speaks metaphorically to the current landscape: everywhere either damaged, threatened by damage, or protected from damage. These images are meant to articulate our common anxiety about the environment while probing for new forms of beauty. Each print is numbered and signed.
