David Nadel has photographed the remains of burned-down forests in Northwest Montana for much of the past four winters. A resident of the state, he hikes up mountains and treks through trail-less terrain while lugging a large-format camera. He shoots color, though many of his images look like black-and-white etchings. His exhibition, “Burn,” is on view at Sasha Wolf Gallery in New York through March 26.
The gallery’s description of Nadel’s images notes, “Where a dense, green, classically beautiful forest landscape existed all that is left, post wildfires, are the stark and devastated monument-like remains.”
