Nuclear Enchantment: Photographs by Patrick Nagatani

Item # 150209.

Essay by Eugenia Parry Janis.

Patrick Nagatani was an internationally known photographer whose work explored elaborate meditations about the landscape and the people of the state of New Mexico which, as the photographer notes, "contains the most extensive nuclear-weapons research, management, training, and testing facilities and organizations in the United States.” These large format photographs characterized by an intense, sulfuric color explore with profound wit and irony, Nagatani's deep understanding of nuclear fear in our time. Eugenia Parry Janis's lively and subjective essay informs with provocative insights into Nagatani's work and his magical obsessive personality and places him in a cultural context.
