Description

Richard Long's photographs are simple and direct, drawing on his perceptions of nature as encountered on long walking trips. His art embodies the essence of his experience, not a visual representation of it, and so it signals a radical departure from traditional landscape depictions. The three prints comprising Thirty-Seven Campfires, Mexico record the wild terrain around the Rio Urique in the Mexican mountain range of Sierra Tarahumara, which Long and a friend explored on a six-day walking tour in 1987.
