Axiom Contemporary is pleased to announce POINTS OF VIEW, a solo exhibition by aerial photographer Donn Delson, whose work is referential to the works of the great photographic pioneer Nadar – who developed birds-eye-view images of the Parisian cityscape from a hot air balloon. Delson’s technique is achieved through his use of the latest camera technologies from 10,000 feet in the air, in an open-door helicopter, producing geometrically intricate, sublime and even painterly images of our urban and natural landscapes.
Donn’s first aerial photographs were taken over the glaciers of New Zealand, and now, in his seventies, Delson has shot everything from shipping containers to fishing boats docked in a harbor, to ever-expansive, colorful fields of wildflowers. In his accumulation of a myriad locations stretching from the land to the sea, Delson has achieved a dominance of the landscape by developing a practice that has no borders – an artistic expression that spans as far back as the early 19th century Western romantic painters.
The exhibition is located at Axiom Contemporary Gallery at 2801 Main Street in Santa Monica and is on view May 9, 2019 – June 16, 2019.
