From the museum:
Anchored by the creative devices that have become characteristic of Nick Brandt’s powerful and penetrating artistic style, This Empty World envisions a world overwhelmed by development, where there is no longer space for animals to survive. Brandt aims to highlight the vulnerabilities of both animals and poor rural people, the primary casualties in the environmental degradation that comes with the short economic gain of out-of-control development.

In the last century an enormous percentage of the world’s flora and fauna have vanished. Considering biodiversity is nature’s own deterrent to extinction, this reduction leaves our environment increasingly vulnerable. This traveling exhibition of 31 large scale photographs by Brandt, conveys the need to address man’s role in the escalating environmental and ecological destruction of the natural world.
