Andrew Zimmermann, “Colorado Winter #1”, 8” H x 10” W, Silver Gelatin Photograph, 2008

The Fisher Gallery presents an exhibition of large format, black and white photographs by Arlington, VA based photographer Andrew Zimmermann.

The artist uses an 8 x 10 camera and traditional darkroom processes to reveal the stark abstract qualities of landscape. This series of images captures in photography what far Eastern artists have expressed through poetry and ink painting for centuries: the character of blankness. In most photographs, texture and detail form the image of the photographer’s subject. Here, negative space is as important as positive; absence and emptiness define the style and mood of these images.

Andrew Zimmermann lives and works in Arlington, Virginia. His work has been influenced not only by photographers, but also by old masters such as Titian and Rembrandt, and by Chinese ink painters Dong Qichang and Bada Shanren.
