“Donna J. Wan’s mesmerizing images are concerned with people’s interactions with nature. Witnessing the human race as presented through her lens is liberating,” states Benedict-Jones. “The men and women we witness in the forest, at the gorge, by the river, and elsewhere, are dwarfed by nature as they assume their rightful place in the universe. With their backs turned to us, and their faces barely visible, these people become placeholders for you, and for me.” - Linda Benedict-Jones, Curator of Photography, Carnegie Museum of Art
