Constant Repeating Themes Aubrey J. Kauffman
September 11 - October 9
As a photographer, the themes of urban landscape and man’s impact on the environment have long intrigued me both artistically and intellectually. I witness this in constructions as simple as building façades in a strip mall to the deserted athletic fields in parks and playgrounds.
Through my viewfinder I seek to contrast and compare the interactions of natural and man-made elements. I tend to seek out landscapes that speak to a certain stillness. In the buildings and structures that I photograph, I emphasize their architectural quality in the space that they exist. Geometry, shadow and light play major roles in my image making. I consider my work to be informed by traditional landscape. My interpretation reflects a sense of solitude that I wish to convey on to the viewer.
