“Biblical motifs or evidence of man-made global warming? The Clouds series is both: a document of human creativity and relentless exploitation” (Gefeller).
Beautiful and threatening at the same time, German photographer Andreas Gefeller presents a dramatic series of clouds in his new portfolio. These formations are in fact condensed steam coming out of the cooling tower of a coal plant, which the artist has decontextualised and manipulated in his typical style that blends documentation and construction. However this is a clear break from Gefeller’s usual technique of combining hundreds of shots into one final picture. In these images he has recorded a quick, transient phenomenon in one single shot – a form that only exists for a second. At once material and transparent, Clouds are a perfect synthesis of Gefeller’s quest for visualisation of the invisible and manipulation of perception. Please allow 2 weeks for shipping.
