The Falcon’s Garden
in cooperation with Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie
Jessica Auer’s work is broadly concerned with the study of landscapes as cultural sites. Through a documentary practice she examines our social, political and aesthetic attitudes towards nature and remote places. Auer is best known for her large format photographs that examine the ways in which landscapes have been preserved, altered or commodified for sightseeing. Through this work she expresses a concern for the vulnerability of remote sites and communities, powerless when confronted with mass tourism.
