Artist talk with Dr. Richard S. Buswell in conjunction with his exhibit Close to Home. Throughout his career, Buswell increasingly has moved closer to his subject matter, emphasizing corroded artifacts and decayed bones to reveal the ravages of time. Ironically, Buswell’s photographs are not about loss, but about preservation. Buswell documents the effects of extraction and industry, while also portraying the renewal of the land.
