2014 Best In Show: Platter Form, Garrett Loveless

The Natural Man features large scale photographs by Mark Hedengren, Utah Art & Museum's 2013 Visual Arts Fellow. These photos act as immersive portraits of human and habitat.

"Our desire to be in nature runs deep. We put plants in our office. We travel thousands of miles to Iceland. We spend millions of dollars for a loft that has a view of Central Park. Like salmon, we use our vacation time on a quest to get back to our home...the natural world.

This body of work--The Natural Man--is an exploration of our relationship with nature and the many creative ways we find to get back to its therapeutic surroundings. From cliff jumping to Salt Flats car racing, the desire to be in our natural surroundings is born into the human experience."

-Mark Hedengren
