Helmar Lerski: Transformations Through Light
Helmar Lerski: Transformations Through Light at Ubu Gallery in New York. "...Spanning more than thirty years of his photographic career, the exhibition presents the controlled luminosity for which the artist is renowned. Portraits from five different series, most notably Verwandlungen des Lichts ('Transformations Through Light'), demonstrate the way in which Lerski constructively manipulated both natural and artificial light, effectively representing the common as dignified. This body of work upholds the artist’s declaration that 'in every human being there is everything; the question is only what the light falls on.'
