Axiom Contemporary is pleased to announce POINTS OF VIEW, a solo exhibition of new work by Donn Delson.

 

Donn Delson has made aerial photography the subject of his fascination. Referential to the works of the great photographic pioneer Nadar - who developed birds-eye-view images of the Parisian cityscape from a hot air balloon - Delson’s technique is achieved through his use of the latest camera technologies from 10,000 feet in the air, in an open-door helicopter, producing geometrically intricate, sublime and even painterly images of our urban and natural landscapes.

 

Delson’s obsession with flight was fostered at a young age by his father, who continually taught him, "the sky is the limit.” His first aerial photographs were taken over the glaciers of New Zealand and now, in his seventies, Delson has shot everything from shipping containers to fishing boats docked in a harbor, to ever-expansive colorful fields of wildflowers. In his accumulation of a myriad locations stretching from the land to the sea, Delson has achieved a dominance of the landscape by developing a practice that has no borders - an artistic expression that spans as far back as the early 19th century Western romantic painters.
