Photographer David T. Hanson will give a 20-30 minute slide lecture and Q&A. on his
book The Cloud of Unknowing at Revelations on Saturday, November 2nd, starting at
1:30 PM. David T. Hanson is widely acclaimed for his studies of environmental ruin. In
his previous books—including Colstrip, Montana (2010) and Waste Land (2018)—he
has exquisitely photographed what we might regard as visual indifference, even
devastation, in America’s inhabited landscape. As a counterpoint to what can only be
described as the toxic, he has now made an extraordinary document of sacred,
cherished spaces, from Cedar Rapids to Kathmandu. Under the title The Cloud of
Unknowing, derived from the expression of a medieval Christian mystic, but equally
applicable to the voice of a Buddhist seer, Hanson has redressed the imbalance of
corrupted space with places of profound harmony. In creating this series, he traveled
throughout the United States and made seven extended trips to India and Nepal.
