Unix Gallery at Aipad

UNIX Gallery is excited to announce our return to the 39th edition of The Photography Show, presented by AIPAD, the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium. From April 4 - April 7, 2019, this highly anticipated event will be at Pier 94, home to the renowned Armory art show. This also marks UNIX Gallery’s third year in a row participating in The Photography Show after strongly curated booths in 2017 and 2018. The Photography Show is open to the public starting April 3rd from 5 - 8pm, with a VIP preview on April 3 with early access entry from 2 - 5 PM.

The Photography Show, organized by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, will present exceptional photography from early masters, modern luminaries, and rising and established contemporary names. UNIX Gallery will proudly be featuring works by contemporary photographer Christian Voigt. Voigt, a German photographer, is known for his impressive images created using large-format cameras. Voigt has photographed great libraries, museums, landscapes and temples. Through his lens, Voigt captures mankind’s extraordinary buildings and architecture. “The intensity of the image, or of what one perceives as being alienated, is the result of Christian Voigt’s camera technique,” explains art critic, Simone Simon, of  Voigt’s work, finding “his own form and his unique style by experimenting with the proven technique of multiple exposures, first practiced in the 1930s, in which several pictures of the same image are taken on top of each other... And so what we see is an unreal reality. It is the result of an inner search for meaning that the photographer experiences as pure and natural. His intuitive method allows him to play an exciting game with time and form. His photographs of exotic nature and cosmopolitan cities look like surreal stage sets. As if they had been painted with a camera.”

Christian Voigt remains committed to perfectionism, pushing the boundaries of what is technically possible. Yet he has also embarked on a new path, and radically opened up his visual language. The results defy nearly all the criteria commonly applied to photographic art. In his unique and inimitable way,  Christian Voigt has again tested the limits of photography as a medium, transforming 2-dimensional images into 3-dimensional objects.

Born in Munich, Germany, Christian Voigt lives and works in Hamburg and the south of France. Voigt’s fine art photography has been widely recognized, appearing in numerous museum exhibitions and gallery solo shows. The artist has shown in Basel, Hamburg, New York, Los Angeles,  London, Saint Tropez, Amsterdam, Madrid, and Dubai.
