Nature vacillates between abstraction and representation in the recent photographs of Matthew Brandt, on view at Yossi Milo and M+B. Part of Mr. Brandt’s process involves soaking his prints in water from the lakes he photographs, which results in blurry passages in the final images. Other landscapes verging on abstraction are Edward Burtynsky’s aerial photograph “Dryland Farming” at Bryce Wolkowitz, which was taken in Spain as part of a series investigating the global water crisis, and Victoria Sambunaris’s stark image of a copper mine from 2002 at Yancey Richardson.
