“What does it mean to explore?” Photography by Adam DeSorbo
Wednesday, October 26, 2022,10 am through
Saturday, December 3, 2022, 4 pm
“What does it mean to explore?” was made during my exploration of the Adirondack Park from 2020-2021. During this time, I was guided by the question of how landscape can remain as itself while being seen as more than a separate-from-humanity, wild place. How does one view earth not as a subject, but rather as the life source from which we come and to which we are intrinsically connected?
Through the exploration of place and concept, I was guided by moments of quickly passing time that provided an opportunity for momentary oneness and new understandings of what it means to spend time amongst the mountains. In order to portray the intricacy of this relationship with the landscape, the photographs represent both the grandiosity and intimacy of place as an ode to life on earth being reliant on both the large and the small, regardless if it is ourselves, biodiversity and ecosystems, society, or even the universe in its infinitely-expanding entirety.

ABOUT THE BOOK|
When Ohio-born Pru Steiner arrives in New York in 1976, she follows in a long tradition of young people determined to take the city by storm. But when she falls in love with and marries Spence Robin, her hotshot young Shakespeare professor, her life takes a turn she couldn’t have anticipated.
Morningside Heights is a sweeping and compassionate novel about a marriage surviving hardship. It’s about the love between women and men, and children and parents; about the things we give up in the face of adversity; and about how to survive when life turns out differently from what we thought we signed up for.
