The Beautiful Machine by Sandy Nicholson
Exhibit Run: May 1 2019 – September 1 2019
When the Eiffel Tower was erected, Walter Benjamin wrote about the changing perspective that machines brought to the minds of the people of Paris. Today, consumer drones can carry this shifting perspective. I have a lifelong obsession with ordinary moments filled with beauty. These photographs were taken over one year as the seasons passed and I saw familiar places in a new way from above.
