The Wildfire that Begat Suburbia
Zev TiefenbachSeptember 15 - November 17, 2018
Based on a 2007 photographic series taken in Southridge BC, a subdivision on the outskirts of Kelowna that was built on the site of the 2003 Okanagan Mountain fires, The Wildfire that Begat Suburbia examines the relationship between natural disasters, wilderness, religiosity and suburban development.
Tiefenbach’s large format backlit photography captures stunning views of the landscape set against a more mundane backdrop of housing development. Te ethereal glow from the images intensifies the visual impact, imparting the euphoric sense of inevitability that often accompanies new developments.
The Wild fire that Begat Suburbia speaks to the underlying social condition where “natural disasters” are harnessed by capitalist interests who posture themselves as the divine force of inevitable progress.
