Renate Aller: Photographer
You have to imagine these really large. As a Christmas present to ourselves, Sara Kate and I left the baby with her mother and checked into a sweet little hotel in Sag Harbor for TWO nights just before New Year’s. In wandering around empty handed – for the first time in 15 months – we stepped into the amazing Ruby Beets where I spotted the absolutely gorgeous photograph below…
Printed large and hung on the wall ready to be showcased behind a sofa or other really large object, this photograph of a gently breaking wave captured all the calmness and ease that I happened to be feeling at that particular time. I wanted a copy OR I wanted to run right down to the water and try to take a picture like this myself. What a great little vacation it was.
Renate Aller is a Swiss born artist who now lives in New York, but apparently also has a house by the sea, where she has taken all of these pics. First shown at the Adamson Gallery in 2006 in a show called Fixed Coordinates, each pic was taken from exactly the same location over time. Taken by the seascape, Aller clearly moved her camera around for many of the others.
