Throug­hout his pro­li­fic care­er as a pho­to­gra­pher, Emmet Gowin has thre­aded toge­ther see­min­gly dis­pa­ra­te sub­jects: his wife, Edith, and their exten­ded fami­ly; Ame­ri­can and Euro­pean land­s­capes; aeri­al views of envi­ron­men­tal deva­sta­ti­on, brought toge­ther by his ongo­ing inte­rest in issu­es of sca­le, the impact of the indi­vi­du­al, and noti­ons of belonging.

This long-awai­ted sur­vey pays tri­bu­te to Gowin’s remar­kab­le care­er and his impact on the medi­um. Fol­lo­wing his mar­ria­ge to Edith Mor­ris in 1964, Gowin began work on a series of images of his exten­ded fami­ly that is now reco­gni­zed as a touchstone of twen­tieth-cen­tu­ry Ame­ri­can pho­to­gra­phy. He pho­to­gra­phed the child­ren and the aging par­ents, and made inti­ma­te por­traits of his wife, con­ti­nuing a pho­to­gra­phic tra­di­ti­on inheri­ted from his men­tor, Har­ry Cal­la­han, with whom he stu­di­ed in the 1960s.

His focus broa­den­ed in the 1980s, when he began an explo­ra­ti­on of land­s­cape and aeri­al pho­to­gra­phy, most spe­ci­fi­cal­ly in his docu­men­ta­ti­on of Mount St. Helens and the Ame­ri­can West. He has pho­to­gra­phed in the Czech Repu­blic, Ita­ly, Mexi­co, Japan and the United Sta­tes, with a con­ti­nued inte­rest in irri­ga­ti­on, mining and natu­ral resour­ces, and the effects of mili­ta­ry tes­ting on the environment.

As a pho­to­gra­phy pro­fes­sor at Prince­ton Uni­ver­si­ty from 1973 to 2009, Gowin has exer­ted a power­ful influ­ence on several gene­ra­ti­ons of photographers.
