Artist-led Tour: Elger Esser

Join exhibiting artist Elger Esser as he takes us on an artist-led tour of his solo exhibition Morgenland at Parasol unit.

Esser will discuss his new photographic series created during his travels in the Eastern countries of Lebanon, Egypt and Israel from 2004 to 2015. Their quiet and serene beauty, however, is disturbing because it is in such stark contrast to what we know of the ugly conflicts taking place in the region today and how they are generally portrayed in the media.

Nature and the landscape are central themes throughout Elger Esser's photographic oeuvre. Often in muted, sepia or monochromatic colours, his works have a stillness about them that evokes a sense of the sublime. Esser's large-format photographs typically depict European lowlands with his characteristic low horizon lines, pale luminous colours and vast skies, beaches, wetlands or seas. His skilful use of traditional processes, such as photogravure printing, gives his images an intense sharpness, depth and luminosity.
