Successive technological revolutions have had an impact on both the natural world and society, radically changing their relationship. The Tenth International Biennale of Photography, entitled In Nature and showing in Turin, Italy, until 12 October, reflects the individual relationships of more than 30 artists with nature in an era of scientific dominance.

Death is a frequent theme in this powerful exhibition. For example, British documentary photographer Clive Landon recorded the horror of the livestock slaughter and burning during the 2001 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. One of his photographs recalls the pastoral ideal of a John Constable painting — but a closer look reveals that all the cows are dead.

Kiev artist Ilya Chichkan responds to the darkness of modern Ukrainian history. Ten years ago he 'borrowed' the deformed fetuses from mothers living in Kiev during and after the Chernobyl nuclear accident. The fetuses were preserved in formalin at the University of Kiev's medical school. Chichkan dressed them in jewels, like the sleeping princes of Ukrainian legend, and photographed them, as shown here, in the serene poses of a normal sleeping child, imposing an anachronistic dignity.
