Aller is a contemporary photographer from Germany based in New York. As a child, she spent vacations visiting, hiking, and photographing the mountains of Austria, Germany, and Italy, beginning her lifelong appreciation for nature and the outdoors. Her latest project includes mountain peaks from six continents. These photographs were taken from locations as high as 22,500 feet (adjacent to Mount Everest) to the European glaciers and mountain peaks of her childhood vacations. The subject matter is monumental, yet the images connect the viewer in a way that is not overpowering. Aller engages us with these giants in all their detail, the veins and textures of the rocks in their constantly transient state. She isolates the mountain from its expected surroundings, using and presenting the familiar and the known in an intimate way, relating to parallel realities from different locations, opening up conversations between the different (political) landscapes in which we live.

The book includes 61 images from the Mountain Interval portfolio. Read the essay by Terrie Sultan featured in the book here.

Mountain Interval is Aller's fourth monograph published with Radius Books, following Ocean | Desert, dicotyledon, and the long-term project Oceanscapes. Her artworks are in the collections of corporate institutions, private collectors, and museums, including Lannan Foundation, Santa Fe; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; New Britain Museum of American Art, CT; Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germany; Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, WI; and Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, NY.

New Images by Mitch Dobrowner

Jul 7, 2018

Catherine Couturier Gallery is pleased to announce that gallery artist, Mitch Dobrowner, is releasing two new photographs that are now available to collectors.

Words from the artist:

"I always have to remind myself that what seems to be is not always as it really is. That the Earth is really a billion-year-old rock spinning through Space.

These 2 images represent a juxtaposition between how I see our natural world and the urban landscapes man has built upon it.

I always thought that if I could do a 1000 year time-lapse of the city of Los Angeles we’d see that everything we have constructed is just temporary; that the landscape itself wouldn’t change but what mankind built upon it would rise and fall over time. We’re only temporary here. The land we think we own, we don't - we're only borrowing it. That land will still be here where we're all gone." - Mitch Dobrowner
