Continuing his decade-long search for beauty and meaning in a rapidly industrializing world, Bialobrzeski focuses his large format camera on landcapes that are in the middle of being recreated, and celebrates in glorious color and glowing light places that are desolate and uninviting This contradiction produces images that suggest a festival atmosphere while describing isolation and dehumanization. The long exposures required by these mostly nighttime images create ghost-like and other-worldly scenarios which are rooted in reality by the presence of naked trees, people lingering in the shadows, and other evidence of man’s inescapable presence. By choosing not to specifically identify their locations, he points out the universal nature of these conditions.
Peter Bialobrzeski was born in Wolfburg in 1961. His work has been critically acclaimed both nationally and internationally, and his work is in numerous private, corporate and museum collections. He is represented in the United States by Laurence Miller Gallery.
