American, b. 1952

Photographer Mark Klett is best known for cool, impersonal images of desert landscapes in the American Southwest, taken from a similar vantage points and under similar lighting conditions as 19th-century photographs by the likes of seminal surveyors William Henry Jackson and Timothy O’Sullivan. These photos consider changes in landscape, history, culture, aesthetics, technology, representation, and perception. Klett has collaborated with several artists, including Byron Wolfe with whom he has produced photographic projects on The Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and other historic landscapes. His body of work also includes an exploration of decay, loss, abandonment, and death through images of fading Navajo wall drawings, aging men and women, trashed motorhomes, and the like. He has also worked abroad, namely in Portugal, where he photographed vineyards and vistas in the Douro River region, and in Japan, where he photographed earthquake wreckage in Kobe.
