At Able Baker, maps and landscapes head in the right direction together – Press Herald

Have you ever thought about conversations that you might be able to have revolving around maps? If you are like most people, this isn’t the case. However, there are two shows at Able Baker Contemporary that create powerful conversations about place and perceptions about those places through maps and landscapes. To learn more, read more in this article.

Key Takeaways:

  • “Mapping Extremes” brings together landscape and documentary photography by Shoshannah White and Sage Lewis, with data maps by Christian MilNeil
  • Having seen a stunning body of White’s work from a three-week arctic on-ship residency on view at Corey Daniels Gallery, I was looking forward to this show.
  • Corey Daniels is a gallery dedicated to formalism and sophisticated design, and there White’s photographs and encaustic works ride their visual intelligence.

“In simple terms, maps are geared towards functional data while landscapes are primarily vehicles for subjective impression.”
