Introduction

Portrait? Or Landscape? In documenting the natural world, our producers discover those old painterly distinctions don’t quite hold. The Kitchen Sisters explore a canyon, Jonathan Goldstein goes camping, and Elizabeth Arnold enters bear territory—places devoid of people—but when they point their microphones at the landscape, they find stories that seem a lot like… well, like portraits. And so in this hour we present stories about people—and the places that make them scared, and sad, and fighting mad.
