About the Book

The latest project from New York–based photographer Renate Aller includes mountain peaks from six continents.These photographs were taken from locations as high as 22,500 feet (adjacent to Mount Everest) to the European glaciers and mountain peaks of her childhood vacations. The subject matter is monumental, yet the images connect the viewer in a way that is not overpowering. Similar to the sand dune images from Ocean | Desert (Radius, 2014), the artist engages us with these giants in all their detail, the veins and textures of the rocks in their constantly transient state. Aller isolates the mountain from its expected surroundings, using and presenting the familiar and the known in an intimate way, relating to parallel realities from different locations, opening up conversations between the different (political) landscapes in which we live.

New Work by Jeri Eisenberg

Sep 21, 2018

In upstate New York, Jeri Eisenberg shared with us that she is happy to see crisp fall air beginning to visit us, and an early start to the change in the sugar maple foliage.  

She recently captured these images of acacia trees and wild fennel plants during her recent spring travels to the Peloponnese and Puglia: the acacia lined many of the routes in small towns she visited in the former, and the fennel grew as weeds in untended plots of land in the latter.  She stated,"Although my travels are not driven by my intentions to photograph, without fail while in new environs something sings out to say 'slow down, look more closely at this piece of our everyday world, consider it's inherent wonder'.  During these most recent travels, the calligraphic effect of the acacia fronds grabbed my attention, as did the humorous puff balls of the wild fennel.  It was impossible not to respond."

We hope you enjoy these new peices!
