Oceanscapes One View Ten YearsBook - 2010
German-born photographer Renate Aller has been photographing the Atlantic Ocean for over a decade, from a single point on Long Island's fabled coastline. Her images capture the shifting colors and textures of the sky and water, and the beauty and grandeur of the ocean, providing a rich document of what has made the Hamptons such an integral aspect of New York life. The sublime beauty of this Atlantic view, which Aller connects to the great nineteenth-century German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich, also invokes metaphors for the landscapes of human emotions. Aller's viewpoint is static, but the changing weather and light allow for a diverse series of images that invite a plethora of associations. Essays place Aller's work both in the context of landscape photography and the history of images of the Hamptons.
