The Photographic Representation of Atmospheric Perspective in the Silver-Chloride Contact Print
The talk will be held in the NSR from 1:30-3:30 PM on May 6th. It will explore the optical properties of atmospheric perspective as a continuation of Aubie’s previous talk.
“The first part of the lecture will consist of my reading the brilliant sub-chapter devoted to atmospheric perspective and optics in Alois Riegl’s The Historical Grammar of the Visual Arts (1897-1898).
In the second part of the lecture, I will show a new body of contact prints inspired by the atmospheric perspectives of Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel The Elder, and Caspar David Friedrich.”
