303 Gallery: Landscape photography exhibition by Florian Maier-Aichen

What do you get when you cross German landscapes with Californian coastlines? Yes, that's right: a Florian Maier-Aichen exhibition! 303 Gallery is proud to present its second exhibition by the landscape photographer, who was born in Stuttgart and studied at the University of California in Los Angeles, the University of Essen in Germany and the Hoegskolan for Fotografi och Film Gothenborg, Sweden. The exhibition will run until 11 April 2009.

Florian works with “varying degrees of straight photography and digital intervention to create work that challenges our visual understanding of the photographic image.” Using large format cameras and Photoshop manipulation he creates striking images of natural, industrial and cultural landscapes, such as the Alps or the Californian coastline.

His “Der Watzmann” piece for example, is a mountain landscape, which makes reference to German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich’s most iconic painting. Maier-Aichen uses unusual and extreme viewpoints taken from helicopters or from mountain peaks. His ways of using colour and light mean that his work often looks more like paintings, rather than photographs. We have a sneak preview of some of the work on show at the 303 Gallery for you here.....
