Camping in America’s southern region is a humbling experience. The unforgiving terrain can leave the most experienced camper lost. It’s vast. It’s filled with dangerous animals and it’s desolate. But none of these factors stopped Victoria Sambunaris from spending two years camping and photographing her experience along the US Mexican border.
In anticipation of her show at Yancey Richardson Gallery, Wallpaper Magazine* reviewed her work. As they described, “The places themselves are jaw-droppingly vast, and Sambunaris’ treatment of this is skillfull, if not powerful – no mean feat, if you consider the all too real threat of grizzly bears, rattlesnakes, and other such questionable encounters." If you’re in New York City, Victoria’s work will be on display at the Yancey Richardson Gallery until April 9, 2011. Below we’ve posted a few images from her exhibit.
