UNTEN VON OBEN | BELOW FROM ABOVE

Was würden wir entdecken, wenn wir die Welt von oben aus jeder Perspektive sehen könnten und unser Blickwinkel grösser wäre, als der aus dem Fenster des Passagierflugzeugs? Was würden wir entdecken, wenn wir hoch in der Luft schweben könnten und uns die Schwerkraft nicht an den Boden zwingen würde? Der 1928 in Winterthur geborene Pionier der Luftfotografie, Georg Gerster, beantwortet uns mit seinen Fotografien von oben, welche er bei über 3500 Flugstunden in Kleinflugzeugen aufnahm, diese Fragen. Nach einer Reihe von erfolgreichen Einzelausstellungen in den vergangenen Jahren in New York, London und Paris, sowie in der Fotostiftung in Winterthur ist dies seine erste Einzelausstellung in der Fabian & Claude Walter Galerie in Zürich. Die Ausstellung Unten von Oben | Below from Above zeigt eine Auswahl der Serien Un Petit Tour du Monde und Paradise Lost aus dem reichen, analogen Bilderschatz des Fotografen.

What would we discover if we could see the world from above from every possible perspective and our field of vision was greater than that from the window of a passenger plane? What would we discover if we could float high above the ground without being pulled back down to earth by the force of gravity? The pioneer of aerial photography, Georg Gerster, who was born in 1928 in Winterthur, answers our questions with the aerial photographs he took during more than 3,500 hours of flying in small aircraft. Following a series of successful solo exhibitions in New York, London and Paris over the years, as well as at the Fotostiftung (Swiss Foundation of Photography) in Winterthur, this is Gerster’s first solo exhibition at the Fabian & Claude Walter gallery in Zurich. The Unten von Oben | Below from Above exhibition features a selection from the Un Petit Tour du Monde and Paradise Lost series, from the photographer’s rich, analogue treasure trove of pictures.
