About the Art
At the Dia:Beacon museum, a group of visitors herds together to the right, leaving a empty imbalance in the viewer’s visual landscape.
This oversized photo is about contrasts–light and dark, full and empty–but the geometric lines offer a symmetry that balances the entire piece.
This is a statement piece. The bigger sizes can be hung solo, and the smaller prints make a great addition to a gallery wall.
About the artist
It wasn’t until Manhattan based photographer AJ Feld was gifted a camera that he truly appreciated film and the art of black and white photography. He has always loved the seemingly simple beauty of the medium, but film forces AJ to slow down, drown out the chaos and focus. Film makes unique, ordinary moments worth capturing, and those are the moments he tries to share. His photos are both truthful and cinematographic and they spark our curiosity.
I have always been attracted to the beauty of film. Its depth and tangibility brings viewers into the scene. It forces me to slow down and drown out the chaos of the city. Film makes ordinary moments worth capturing, and those are the moments I try to share.”
