The CAMERA WORK Virtual Gallery presents the first part of the exhibition cycle Moods of the Sea. With 17 works by 13 artists, it deals with the multifaceted moods of the maritime cosmos and can be visited at any time of the day exclusively in their virtual rooms.
In addition to powerful nature photographs by Thomas Billhardt, Sebastian Copeland, David Drebin, and Jean-Baptiste Huynh, the exhibition also addresses the fragility of the habitats of water and ice with the work »Tribute to the Arctic« by Michaela Weber. Playing a cello made of carbon on an ice floe of the Helheim Glacier, the artist refers to the effects of the CO2 footprint on its melting. A photograph by Thomas Hoepker, taken in the mid-1990s at the border fence between the U.S. and Mexico on the Pacific Ocean, also visualizes political issues.
Olaf Heine’s, Elliott Erwitt’s, and Eugenio Recuenco’s works in »Moods of the Sea I« impressively show how water is able to accentuate moods. Brilliant natural colorations in Hans Feurer’s, Russell James’, and Albert Watson’s works as well as high-contrast black-and-white photographs such as »The Killers« by David Yarrow conclude the first cycle of the exhibition series.
The exhibition features works by photographers such as Thomas Billhardt, Sebastian Copeland, David Drebin, Elliott Erwitt, Hans Feurer, Olaf Heine, Thomas Hoepker, Jean-Baptiste Huynh, Russell James, Eugenio Recuenco, Albert Watson, Michaela Weber, and David Yarrow.
