Photographer Kim Keever creates landscapes in a water-filled tank. His large-scale photos are created through the construction of topographies inside a 200 gallon tank that is filled with water. Keever brings the dioramas to life through colorful lighting.
Keever’s influences resides in Luminism, an American landscape painting style of the mid-1850s which was characterized by effects of light in landscapes, and the Romanticism movement. The David B. Smith Gallery in Colorado has his work on exhibition from now until November 19.
“The symbolic qualities he achieves result from his understanding of the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us.”
