Meghann Riepenhoff has been named a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow. Riepenhoff’s work questions the nature of our relationships to the landscape, images, time, and impermanence. Entitled Littoral Drift, a geologic term describing the action of wind-driven waves transporting sand and gravel, her current series consists of camera-less cyanotypes made in collaboration with the landscape and the ocean, at the edges of both.
