©Thad Russell, 'Sold'

Exhibition: April 15, 2013 – May 31, 2013
Artist Reception: Wednesday, April 24   6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Promised Land is a quiet and curious investigation of the contemporary American landscape, “in all of its beauty, perversity and pathos.”  Thad Russell has spent the last 10 years photographing from Las Vegas to the Central Valley of California, the Mojave Desert to Southern Florida, examining what he describes as “locations of the American Dream.”  This poignant exhibit touches on issues of land use and resource management in the ever changing façade of the American landscape, exposing a dichotomy between the American myth and American reality.

Thad Russell is a graduate of Stanford University and The Rhode Island School of Design, where he received his M.F.A. His work has been published in notable publications such as the London Observer, Los Angeles Times Magazine and New York Magazine.

The Garner Center is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  The gallery is located at 537 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston on the second floor of the New England School of Photography.
