    About The Work

    Youngsuk Suh's Wildfire photographs capture the California landscape during the 2008—2009 brushfires, focusing on fire management and examining nature as an engineered and civilized institution controlled by humans. Rather than portraying the fires as dangerous or catastrophic, Suh trains his camera from a serene distance on the banal oddities occurring in the midst of disaster. Suh says in his artist statement, "The luminous tones and colors of the photographs are used ironically...Like honeybees that are numbed by smoke before harvesting of honey, fire burns through the history of the representation of nature and tranquilizes our senses. The romantic tradition also tells me that nature is as much an invention of the modernity as history."
