Nick Brandt: This Empty World


New York gallery Edwynn Houk, recently exhibited the show, “This Empty World,” by Nick Brandt. The series is a courageous exploration investigating environmental degradation, and its effects on humans and animals alike, set in Maasai, Kenya. The majority of the photographs were taken at night, and illuminated with artificial lighting. The work is both compelling and visionary. If you find yourself in New York, check out the exhibition through April 20, 2019.
