Pamela Pecchio's photographs in her project On Longing, Distance and Heavy Metal express the emotionally-charged state of division experienced while driving between her home and her job. The densely layered composition articulates the angst of a landscape observed through a lens of discontent, expressing a tension even in the most luscious of natural settings. This image by Pecchio, a U.Va. faculty member in the McIntire Department of Art, is a significant addition to UVaM's collection of photography.
