Zack Seckler is a photographer based in New York. He started his career in photojournalism, but eventually found creating the images themselves, rather than documenting them, far more fulfilling. His latest series, Iceland aerials, features a selection of breathtaking aerial photographs of Icelandic landscapes shot from an ultralight aircraft. Seckler captures a beautifully abstracted natural perspective that is as staggeringly momentous as it is delicate. Picturing various natural and animal forms, from birds to seals, the shots reveal an ethereal, and textured world. They are almost dreamlike. With strong figures and forms and a careful composition, we begin to feel the sheer power of Iceland’s frigid tundra. We can also understand the subtlety and magic of Seckler’s experience and astonishing journey.
The Iceland aerials will be exhibited at the Robin Rice Gallery in Manhattan from March 16 through May 8. The photographer will also be displaying a video of his multiple flights from his time in Iceland. With this, the viewer will be able to fully visualize the utter grandeur and splendor of the environment.
