John Ganis is a Detroit-based photographer whose works “mediate between the idyllic and the apocalyptic.” He spent two decades photographing the continental United States, recording glories and encroachments on our landscape, which are reflected in his show at the Iris Bookcafe and in his book, both titled John Ganis: Consuming the American Landscape. 

Ganis gives a free artist’s talk at the cafe 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20. At 2 p.m. the following Sunday, Oct. 27, Sierra Club Miami Group chair Sam McKinley will speak about the exhibition and its implications. 

On display through December. Free. 1331 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, irisbookcafe.com.
