Renate Aller
Oceanscapes – One view – Ten years

German-born photographer Renate Aller has been photographing the Atlantic Ocean for over a decade from a single point on the fabled Hamptons’ coastline. Her images capture the infinitely shifting colors and textures of the sky and water, and the beauty and grandeur of the ocean, providing a rich document of what has drawn people to this area for generations.
The sublime beauty of this view, which Aller directly connects to the great 19th century German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich, is also a metaphor for the landscape of the human emotions. Aller’s viewpoint is static, but the changing weather and light allow for a diverse series of images that open up a vast »visual library« of memories and associations.
The book captures the subtle mystery of her larger prints and the original oceanscapes. It includes essays by New York critic Richard B. Woodward and Hamburger Kunsthalle Museum’s head of contemporary art Petra Roettig, as well as a conversation with German art historian Jasmin Seck, who places Aller’s work both in the context of landscape photography and the history of images of the southern shore of Long Island.
