Sharon Harper: –From Above and Below


As the title of this book suggests, the American photographer Sharon Harper likes different points of view. But they are all related to one space: the sky. It is the center of her photographs, serving either as subject or as vantage point. Whether she's looking out to the stars or downward towards the earth, Harper’s compositions play abstractly with the technical possibilities of the still and video camera, taking snapshots of what are our eyes would otherwise be unable to grasp. Her photographs show several lines formed by stars, the moon, the rain and meteorites passing through the atmosphere. The sky is mostly seen at night, while Harper shoots the earth during the day, in black-and-white or desaturated colors. The product of twelve years of work, From Above and Below is essentially a work on visual perception.
