Tonight: Contrasts at Arlington Artisphere

Artisphere presents an exhibition of large format black and white photographs by Arlington, VA based photographer Andrew Zimmermann.

The artist uses an 8 x 10 camera and traditional darkroom processes to reveal the changing forms of light, perception, and landscape. This series of images, made half in winter and half in summer in Colorado’s Front Range, presents a particular geographic place as a set of dynamic contrasts. The series shows the natural world is constantly in flux, rather than fixed and unchanging.

Andrew Zimmermann lives and works in Arlington, Virginia. His work has been influenced not only by photographers, but also by old masters such as Titian and Cezanne, and 17th century Chinese ink painters Dong Qichang and Bada Shanren.

Artisphere is located at 1101 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Virginia. The general hours are 11AM – 11PM Monday – Friday, 11AM – 2AM Saturday, and 11AM – 9PM Sunday. The opening reception and artist talk are free and open to all.

Opening Reception: Thursday September 29, 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Artist Talk at 5:30
