The Grand Canyon is cool and all, but for those of us who dont have time or scrilla for the four-hour jaunt up north, wed love to see the wondrous gorge photographically depicted in a new light. Like, please. No more South Rim shots at sunset.
Charting the Canyon: Photographs by Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe -- an exhibit that continues through July 12 at Phoenix Art Museum -- is a surprisingly awesome, non-clichéd photographic examination of the national park. The shows two exhibiting artists, Klett and Wolfe, did take some typical imprints of the Canyon how could you not? but a majority of the survey-like color photographs in the show are different takes on the Colorado River-carved wonder, and even include some modern digital manipulations.
