“Inundated with the profane, Angus’s striking images return us to our communal ancient quest for the holy. Just like Kenneth Burke’s (1966) terministic screens, Angus’s photography reflects, selects, and deflects his perceptions of reality by what he chooses to highlight in his landscape photographs. In his terministic screen, Angus is the snake as his photographs are a visual shedding, ending one life as another begins. He shares his powerful medicine with us by choosing what to reveal and what to conceal, guiding us along with both artistic and technical detail. Angus’s stunning photography weaved with Sopensky’s vivid historical descriptions invite the viewer to look beyond the landscapes into what was, what is, and what could be.”
