One of Bucks County’s best-known living artists, Emmet Gowin began his distinguished career making intimate, evocative photographs of his wife and family. He started to make aerial photographs in 1980 as part of a commission to document the massive eruption of Mount St. Helens. Since then, Gowin has created hundreds of compelling aerial images of military test sites, farmland, battlefields, mining areas, and missile silos in such far-flung locations as Oregon’s Columbia River, Kuwait, and the Czech Republic.
Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, this major exhibition was the first comprehensive exploration of Gowin’s aerial work.
