The Nevada Museum of Art (NMA) continues to present outstanding photography among its world-class exhibits. Here are some that are showing during the first part of 2014.

Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places - The Stephen Shore exhibit, "Uncommon Places," is considered one of the most celebrated and influential collections of photographic work produced in the past 40 years. These images chronicle Shore's multiple cross-country road trips, exploring the American landscape from 1973 to 1981. Shore used a wide-format view camera to capture moments that are highly detailed and complex, presenting to the viewer a dense snapshot of the American built environment. Formal concerns such as framing and structure are paramount to his work. This exhibit will be at the NMA through March 30, 2014.

Lauren Bon & The Optics Division Team: Transforming Inert Landscape into Agency - Lauren Bon and the Optics Division of her Metabolic Studio have set up residence in the old Pittsburgh Plate Glass plant at the edge of the Owens Dry Lake in California, where they are reclaiming the chemicals and silver necessary to make and process photographic film and paper. They then use the recaptured materials to make images of the lake in two camera obscuras, one built into a truck and another into one of the silos at the plant. Both are used to create panoramic images of the site. This exhibit will be at the NMA through May 25, 2014.
