Eric Uhlfelder Artist Bio:
1957, NYCEric Uhlfelder is a fine-art photographer, having focused on cities in the Eastern US and across Western Europe. His work is connected with his original career in city planning and urban design. He also is a writer, having covered various subjects including Paris and Venice, city planning, finance, photography, and theatre.The work of Eric Uhlfelder is driven by two major concerns: the beauty of urban form and the remembrance of things past.The Parisian images are from a project Uhlfelder initially undertook between 1983 and 1991 when he studied the city's changing architectural character. His photographs of vernacular Paris evoke the city of Marville and Atget. From serpentine staircases, the rise of the Eiffel Tower, to the flow of the city's streets and the Seine, the curve is Paris' most descriptive feature, and recurs throughout Uhlfelder's work. The black-and-white pieces of Venice [1987-1998] evoke a very different image of this remarkable place. Reducing the city's wide range of colors to various tones of gray, the artist focuses on Venice's equally compelling composition: the juxtaposition of building and space, the integration of structure and water, and the outright splendor of the city's architectural forms. Venice in color looks at the city in a unique manner. The walls of Venice are one of the city's most indigenous and anachronistic features. By focusing upon them close up, the surfaces of barns, railroad cars, building fenestrations, and interiors read as modern abstract art. Uhlfelder's traditional Venetian color renderings are homage to the city's simple, understated elegance.Please click on http://parisandvenice.com/bio.htmlfor access to articles on his work.
