Opening Thursday at Stephen Cohen from 6-9 pm:
The Stephen Cohen Gallery is pleased to announce Sublime, Josef Hoflehner’s most recent black & white photographs from both his Jet Airliner series, and the urban landscapes for which he has become well-known. Many of the images from the exhibition are included in his publications, Jet Airliner, and Unleashed 3, which will be available for purchase. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, October 28, 2010 from 6 – 9 p.m.
Hoflehner’s project, Jet Airliner was shot on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten, where the Island’s famously short landing strip requires commercial jets to fly low over sunbathing tourists, and airplane enthusiasts, capturing fantastic images of what appear to be digitally manipulated scenes. The photographer’s urban landscapes of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Russia, Venice, Italy, and Rio de Janeiro, all shot within the last year, highlight man’s hand on the natural setting.
