Burton Barr Central Library will host an exhibit by Deborah Springstead Ford, titled “Cartography and the Cultural Terrain III,” Jan. 12 – March 20 at the library’s @Central Gallery, 1221 N. Central Ave.

In this body of work, Ford combines photographic images of landscapes and geological forms with historic maps and text to explore the ideas surrounding westward expansion, colonialism and the search for natural resources.

Ford uses photography to engage viewers with issues of the environment and our relationship to it.  Her images are often altered in the camera or in the darkroom, using various photographic techniques, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces.
