Notes: The collaboration between Ed Hill and Suzanne Bloom, which began as a creative experiment in 1974 and has endured these past four decades, culminated in a major retrospective of their work at the National Center of Photography in New York, 2002; this was followed by a 2004 exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Elegy in C, a multi-media work, included in the retrospective, explores complex relationships between natural and man-made realities. Nature is a main protagonist in this as in many of the duo's works created during the 1990s, focusing on the tension between real vs. virtual; nature vs. culture.

Estimate $800-1,200
