Due to the ongoing pandemic, the physical gallery is closed, but this exhibition will be available for viewing at and, by video, through the front window of Studio Rubedo.

John Ganis is an American fine art and documentary photographer whose two books, America’s Endangered Coasts: Photographs from Texas to Maine and Consuming the American Landscape, explores issues of climate change and human incursions on the land. The exhibition Troubled Waters includes fifty color photographs that chronicle the effects of water. Featured in the exhibition is a group of recent re-photographic images of coastal sites affected by sea-level rise as well as photographs documenting the impact of the 2010 BP oil spill. Additionally, a new series of underwater portrait abstractions will be exhibited.

Photographs by Ganis are included in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Detroit Institute of Arts, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

The recipient of the 2008 Harold Jones Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Arizona and the 2007 Honored Educator Award from the Midwest Region of the Society for Photographic Education, Ganis is Professor Emeritus at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
