The MIT Museum presents a new exhibition, Compass Points: Joël Tettamanti, the first showing of the Swiss photographer's work in the United States. The exhibition in the Kurtz Gallery for Photography at the MIT Museum features more than 70 of Tettamanti's works and is on view Feb. 15 to Aug. 31.
Born in Cameroon and raised in Lesotho and Switzerland, Tettamanti creates works that reveal the varied impact of human settlement on the landscape, from Asia to the Arctic Circle. He currently lives in Lausanne.
