Shadowland is a group of perception-shifting images of the wilderness by Hilary Tolan, marking the first time the artist takes her subject outside of the Eastern United States. This current group of photos was taken in Utah, with the bleached, brilliant light of that setting inspiring her alterations. Tolan alters her own photographs of landscapes, building on concepts that absorbed her in previous bodies of work, manipulating the images with minute details that encourage a slower pace to notice.
