‘Yosemite: A Landscape of Life’ by Jay Mather

Yosemite National Park was in master photographer Ansel Adam’s backyard, and it was there that he took many of his iconic images. Jay Mather has also heard Yosemite’s siren song; instead of just photographing its majestic nature, he’s showing us how humans interact with the park. “Many of these images were made during a project to show the intimate human experience in the park in advance of the 100th anniversary in 1990,” he states. “My interest in the personal experiences of the park’s visitors continues. Everyone who comes to the park is a visitor, if only for a day or a decade.” This exhibition is part of the Louisville Photo Biennial; the opening is during the Sept. 25 FAT Friday Trolley Hop from 6–9 p.m.
