Daily Life



The South Asian subcontinent is well known for its breath-taking landscapes, ranging from the mountains of the Himalayas to the calm expanses of the Arabian sea. Mary B. Wheeler's travels brought her to a wide variety of breathtaking places. In Kashmir, she climed and captured the sublime beauty of the mountains with her unfailing lens, and explored the serpentine rivers flowing across the rocky landscape. In Sri Lanka, she strolled along the beaches, recording life along the shore. She put equal energy into her visits to many of South Asia's magnificent gardens, and her explorations of wildlife in the jungles. From the urban to the rural, and the mountains to the sea, Mary B. Wheeler's collection offers many views of how the medium of landscape can define place and mood, bringing distant places to life for the viewer.
