Carol Betsch’s collection of photographs in “A Genius for Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era” focuses on seven distinct landscapes of historical significance to represent the chronological development of the early-20th Century movement. Captured over the course of five years, the selected scenes illuminate the designers’ intentions and landscapes’ unique charm. The images were originally shot for a book of the same title written by Robin Karson and published by the Library of American Landscape History. The exhibition, which has been touring since 2000, will be on view in UGA’s College of Environment and Design’s Circle Gallery through Apr. 28, after which it will remain in the CED’s permanent collection.
