LightSource is pleased to announce a solo exhibition for photographer Frank Schott. Featuring a selection of his work from the last ten years, these images have an iconic sensibility and give us a bird’s eye view onto humanity and its constructs. The specific is edged towards the abstract, often revealing the compelling and disjunctive moment where nature meets man.
Schott grew up in Germany and attended the prestigious Academy of Arts in Cologne. Moving to California in 1998, his work has evolved to include the epic landscapes of the American West as well as architectural, conceptual and more formal environments from both home and his travels.
Influenced by a number of photographic peers and precursors such as Candida Höfer, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and William Eggleston, Schott’s images successfully blend technical, conceptual and formal rigor with a decisive sense of composition and color.
