Andreas Gefeller – NYC

In two weeks time Hasted Hunt will be exhibiting photographs from Andreas Gefeller. The large scale works originate from the ongoing series, “Supervisions.”

Gefeller arrives at these results through a series of collaged photographs. He paces his subject releasing the shutter at intervals effectively mapping the area. Each detail shot is seamed together forming an odd perspective on the whole.

The element of time plays a vital role in these visual tapestries. Each piece of the map was rendered separately in varying conditions. The differences register as slight shifts in atmosphere and light across the entirety.

These works exhibit a way that photography can successfully break with traditional methods of art making. For instance, if a painter was working on a portrait certain rules are generally practiced. Beginning with a fully realized depiction of a nose and moving along completing each feature in turn would generally cause the composition to suffer. Gefeller determines his composition initially and is then free to capture the details.

The final prints are huge, some measuring more than eight feet on the long side. Head over to Hasted Hunt for the opening and see for yourself.
