About Vanishing Points
Vanishing Points is a long term photography project that focuses on significant sites of Indigenous American presence. Including sacred landforms, earthworks, documented archaeological sites and also contested battlegrounds. The book combines beautiful large format landscape images with smaller still lifes of objects collected at the sites. The combination of photographs presented in this book operate as literal and also metaphorical vanishing points. They reflect on the monuments modern culture will leave behind and what the archaeological evidence of our civilization will reveal about our time on earth.
Michael Sherwin is a multimedia artist based in the Appalachian Mountains of northern West Virginia. He has won numerous grants as well as awards. Currently, he is an Associate Professor of Art in the School of Art and Design at West Virginia University.
“The sites in this book are places in the landscape where two lines, or cultures, converge. While visiting these sites. In addition to the large format landscapes, the Vanishing Points project includes a series of smaller modern Artifacts that I collect at the site and document in the studio.” – Michael Sherwin
