Leica Gallery Los Angeles is pleased to present aRound New York, a series of photographs by Al Satterwhite. An opening reception will be held September 3 from 6-9 PM. The works will be on view through September 31, 2015.
The more our world is viewed through today’s ubiquitous digital lens and small screens the more narrowed the perspective. The true magnitude of the cities in which we live, work and play can only be seen through a much broader and larger expression. This is the mission of photographer Al Satterwhite in his latest focus, aRound New York. Its spherical theme of imagery is presented in a series of large prints, custom designed round-shaped books, postcards and calendars. Audiences will experience seeing their world in a new way and with a new appreciation.
Satterwhite’s earlier work can be found at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts -Houston, National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art and many other museums and fine art galleries.
“Using Leica’s digital camera (M240) with my special 180º lens afforded me the ability to get into unique locations with a minimum of equipment and work fast on this special project; a real minimalistic way to work. As we used to say “f8 and be there” – as long as your equipment can deliver, and the Leica system certainly does that.” — Al Satterwhite
