Larry Yust: Photographic Elevations


LA-based, Philadelphia-born filmmaker and photographer Larry Yust combines 10 to 100 digital images to create giant "Photographic Elevations" up to eight feet long (pictured below, detail above).


Opening 24 September 2009 at the Lumas gallery, this will be Yust’s first show in New York City after solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne and most notably the Louvre.


Featuring his infamous photos of the Paris Metro—featured in his oversized book where the images unfold into three-foot-long panoramas—the exhibition also includes shots of streets in Los Angeles, Havana and Berlin, as well as the canals in Venice. The colossal photos provide a feeling of involvement, as if the scene in the image is actually present (click on images for enlarged view).
