Kacper Kowalski, OVER
from Wednesday, October 25, 2017 to Saturday, January 20, 2018
Over is a series of aerial photographs taken from a gyroplane flying over the Polish countryside during the winter. Kacper Kowalski has been an aviation enthusiast for more than 20 years, in particular by means of paragliders and gyroplanes, and is part of a tradition of aerial photography initiated by Edward Burtynsky, George Gerster, George Steinmetz and Yann Arthus-Bertrand, although Kowalski has quickly emerged with his own language. Capturing immaculate landscapes, the photographer operates as an architect of visual formation, systematically searching and graphing the landscape’s precise lines, leading him to a form of abstraction.
