This year’s presentation focuses on environmental crisis and how our artists are responding to it. We are proud to represent many photographers with insightful works that pivot around the landscape, documenting its changes. Our display allows great exposure to younger artists as well as established ones.
Bastiaan Woudt’s images of Himalaya from his series ‘Peak’ interact with the work of Polish photographer Kacper Kowalski, as he flies over frozen territories and explores melting glaciers in his new series ‘Event/Horizon’. A few earlier works by Kowalski consider the impact of industry on the land, echoing a pre-release selection of images from Nick Brandt’s new chapter of ‘The Day May Break’—shot in South America— that focuses on climate change.
Choosing a more philosophical approach, Andreas Gefeller explores how natural structures are a metaphor for cultural and technological phenomena of today’s society. While Frauke Eigen searches for symmetry and harmony within nature, Franco Fontana’s eye extracts beauty out of an untouched landscape as much as out of a highway view or design on a road tarmac.
A separate section of the booth will showcase fashion prints. A selection of works by George Hoynigen Huene will celebrate the beginning of Atlas’ representation of the Estate. We will also display Arthur Elgort, William Klein and Sam Haskins.
