Marc Yankus at ClampArt

ClampArt opens an exhibition of photographs by artist Marc Yankus. This is the artist’s sixth solo show at the gallery.
Marc Yankus’s newest photographs continue his investigation of bustling New York City, but without the noise, traffic, and people—an unseen New York. The artist expertly eliminates extraneous movement and distractions, and distills his images down to an essence—the majesty of more than a century of architecture. The work from the past few years still includes a selection of lesser-known, more nondescript buildings, but Yankus now incorporates many of the city’s iconic structures as well, including a handful of the world’s most celebrated museums (several in panoramic format). Another departure from previous work is the inclusion of dramatic, oblique, aerial perspectives, providing views of famous buildings and familiar city streets from a decidedly unfamiliar vantage point.
