Impressions of Blue Cut, Ruins / Renewal, a photographic essay by Benoit Malphettes

 
In August of 2016, the Blue Cut Fire tore its way through the Cajon Pass. Over the course of eight days, it burned over 37,000 acres and destroyed hundreds of homes and buildings in its path. Although the destruction left by the fire created a desolate setting, esteemed photographer Benoit Malphettes and his wife and business partner Katherine became interested in the resulting landscape. The images they    captured, while filled with devastation and loss, also revealed nature's ability to renew. Impressions of Blue Cut, Ruins |Renewal features Malphettes' works focusing on the ruins that the fire left behind and the renewal that followed. 
 
Impressions of Blue Cut, Ruins / Renewal, a photographic essay by Benoit Malphettes, opens at the San Bernardino County Museum on Saturday, October 28. Family programs that day will include fire safety activities. The exhibit continues through Feb. 25. Museum members can preview the exhibit on Friday, October 27, 5:00pm-6:30pm.
