Peter Stern, Aerial Photography.

After 15 years of photographing the Mid-Atlantic Region from the air, Peter Stern embarked on a new project to photograph from the ground some of the same locations shown in his aerials. From the sky, he has unfettered access to views of the Earth below, and the land becomes more abstract and conceptual. From the land, that perspective is gone, and he is looking at his surroundings from a common vantage point, and attempting to interpret what he sees in a way that is both original and compelling.

As a photographer and ultralight aircraft pilot, Peter Stern explores alone and photographs the most unusual and intriguing landscapes of the Mid-Atlantic Region, from the coal mining areas of Pennsylvania, to the marshes and coastal zones of the Eastern Shore. In his work, he seeks out the in-between places--- the unusual, the overlooked, the forgotten...interpreting them in a way that draws the viewer into a "third space", somewhere between the abstract and the representational. Flying low and slow, he attempts to convey in his imagery an intimacy with the landscape below, and an essence of spirituality in the colors and forms that present themselves, often with minimal reference to scale or recognizable objects.
 
Stern has had solo exhibitions of his aerial photography at the Creative Alliance, American Institute of Architects, the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center, the Pauly Friedman Gallery at Misericordia University, the Towson Unitarian Universalist Church and Goucher College. His work has appeared in the Smithsonian Institution, and many other galleries, as well as group shows.He has also made aerial photographs for environmental organizations; especially those concerned with fracking and abandoned mine land reclamation.
