Terrifying Sublime: Synthetic Alpine Landscapes

Tomas van Houtryve is a photographer who uses a wide range of contemporary and early techniques, continually questioning and reinventing his approach to image-making. He spent a year documenting the efforts to save Notre-Dame from ruin after the devastating fire of 2019. A selection of his honors include the ICP Infinity Award, the Bayeux Prize for War Correspondents, the CatchLight Global Fellowship, a National Geographic Explorer's Grant and the Roger Pic Award. He published Lines and Lineage in 2019. Represented by the Baudoin Lebon gallery in Paris, he is a member of VII Photo Agency since 2010. At the Institute, van Houtryve will be working on “Terrifying Sublime: Synthetic Alpine Landscapes,” employing photography and video to explore the reversal of our power relationship with nature since the notion of the sublime became a prominent concept in art and philosophy.
