Frank Gohlke Gohlke early photographs of the landscape of the Texas towns---especially Wichita Falls---in which his family had resided when he was a child lead to him being chosen to exhibit alongside the likes of Lewis Baltz, Robert Adams and Bernd and Hilla Becher in the now legendary New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape show at the George Eastman House in 1975.

I haven't seen his latter work---his photographs of the Sudbury River that flows in eastern Massachusetts when he worked with color film and a 5X7 inch view camera. I understand that his photographs of 40 mile waterway are a mixture of a celebration of its beauty and a critique of the pollution from the surrounding industry.
