Jane Fulton Alt
The Burn

»These photographs are part of a series begun in 2007 when I observed my first controlled prairie burn. I was immediately struck by the burn’s visual and expressive potential, as well as the way it evoked themes that are at the core of my photographic work. A controlled burn is deliberately set; its violent, destructive force reduces invasive vegetation so that native plants can continue to prosper. (…) These images of regenerative destruction constitute a universal metaphor: the ephemeral moment when life and death are not opposed but are harmonized as a single process to be embraced as one.« Jane Fulton Alt
