Man-altered landscape is the focus of Doug Dertinger’s exhibit, “HOMEFRONT / wonderworld,” at Fayerweather Gallery. Dertinger brings together the opposing forces of civilization and wilderness in a study of light as the changes in weather are reflected in pedestrian areas and spaces we inhabit. His photographs show the small patches in the marginal, neglected urban landscape, he refers to as “the garden” that exists all around us if we look carefully.

The exhibit will comprise two series of images. The first, “HOMEFRONT,” was created after Sept. 11. These images are an investigation of a single neighborhood.

“It’s a way to meditate on domesticity and not get caught up in politics and globalization,” said Dertinger. “This is what happens here.”

The second, “wonderworld,” focuses on the quietness and emptiness as light plays over the everyday landscape found in a friend’s yard.

Dertinger is a visiting faculty member, teaching photography, in the McIntire Department of Art. He received a B.F.A. from Colorado State University and an M.F.A. from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Science.
