Landscape and Memory:
A selection of photographs by Renate Aller and Lynn Davis
Renate Aller’s dynamic compositions are rich with implied narratives, and the photographs in her Mountain Interval series are the fullest expression of her exploration of the interrelationships of romanticism, memory, and place. Capturing the most celebrated and challenging mountain ranges across six continents, photographing while standing at elevations as high as 22,500 feet, her pictures present vistas that are forbidding yet strangely intimate, and never exactly what they seem at first glance.
Lynn Davis is a world-renowned American photographer, known for her images of man-made architecture, global landmarks and the natural world. This large-scale exhibition brings together the artist's two major photography series, which depicts her longstanding engagement with the Icebergs of Greenland and the ancient Egyptian sites. Davis's aesthetic is unique and identifiable through her minimalist approach, as she examined the subject's most essential form. Her geometric and abstract compositions combined with delicate attention to gradients in her photography allows the artist to capture the essence within landscapes and cultural phenomena.
