GALLERY TALK: Peter Stern : Third Spaces
Event Type: exhibitions
In Peter Stern’s photography, viewers see the Mid-Atlantic from a unique and intimate perspective. Flying low, slow, and alone in his small airplane over the coal mines of Pennsylvania and the coastal landscapes of the lower Eastern Shore, Stern conveys an intimacy with his subject that echoes his deep personal connection to the region.
With the ability to fly between 400 and 800 feet above his subjects, and shooting primarily in “bird’s-eye” perspective, Stern discovered that he could create compositions with minimal reference to recognizable objects. These images occupy a place between the abstract and the representational, which Stern refers to as “Third Spaces”. As his preferred subject matter, these landscapes are not the sweeping vistas of natural splendor often seen in aerial photography. Rather he interprets the “in-between” spaces: the odd, unusual, and overlooked landscapes that provide deep visual intrigue.
