"Horizon Variations" at Camera Club of New York
curated by Elizabeth Saperstein, Horizon Variations is an exhibition of conceptual photographs inspired by the impact of decay, disaster and discovery on the natural environment.
The photographs in Horizon Variations express the artists’ ideas about the intangibleness of place or site...
Working at the intersection of sculpture and photography, the artists use photography as a way to explore the philosophical side of occurrences in nature, such as the force of a hurricane, the extinction of a species, or the weathering of rock formations over time. By building scenarios from scratch, studying them, and photographing the results, the artists go beyond traditional landscape photography. Contemporary compositional methods such as sampling, altering and serial numbering are used in combination with commonplace materials. The pristine and eerily calm digital photographs – black and white, monochromatic, and/or color-blocked – are achieved through a variety of techniques.

Art can be anything. Proven, case-in-point, at the 14th Annual Gowanus Artists Studio Tour that took place October 2nd. The event lasted from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., showcasing various kinds of art from all different kinds of artists in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, NY.

Not to be over-shadowed, photography also played a part in AGAST. Cecilia Schmidt’s exhibit of bird watching looks like anything but bird watching from afar.
Schmidt, a digital media photographer, takes photographs of nature to show its raw beauty. One image in particular was a still-shot from a series of birds that she put in a grid with an addition of pixels to enhance the digital elements while maintaining a brush-stroked appearance.
“They’re very painterly,” said Schmidt of her work. “And I think it’s another thing about visual literacy. There’s so much visual media coming towards us…”
Photographs that look exactly like paintings when stilled. Wings looked like the bodies, some bodies looked like the wings, and Schmidt’s photograph stood out.
