“From The Banks of The Tanana River” is Dennis Witmer’s quiet reflection on wild Alaska, his home for over a decade. His black and white images show an expansive, rugged wilderness along the Tanana River, south of Fairbanks, at places untouched, but at many points littered with shell cases, beer cans and trash. Witmer’s photos speak of loss, and they show a resilient environment maintaining its own sense of beauty despite human encroachment.
