beams of light illuminate the snowy landscape by kevin cooley


‘takeoffs: runway 13, JFK’ by  kevin cooley
single channel video with sound (11:17), 2007

 

 

‘lights edge’ is a series of images by american photographer kevin cooley, an opus of work that dedicates itself to revealing the
awe of nature in a different light – quite literally. the breathtaking 
night views of the american snowy landscapes are illuminated
by eerie distress signals, shooting through the sky highlighting the phenomenal unrefined beauty of the topography.
the collection of photos is permeated with a sense of contemplation, wonder and fear – a true example of the potent magnificence
of the natural world brought to attention in a unique, almost otherworldly way.

 

cooley’s video ‘takeoffs: runway 13, JFK’ is being shown as part of the ‘journey forth’ exhibition at wendi norris gallery
in san francisco from july 11th – august 31st, 2013.
