New Photo Edition and Aperture Auction – artmarketblog.com
The Humble Arts Foundation have just launched their latest limited edition photograph which is by the New York based photographer Sarah Wilmer. Untitled 2007 is from the artist’s Cryosphere series which are images of frozen landscapes that I think look like the result of some sort of post-apocalyptic ice age. As well as being eerily beautiful images, Wilmer’s Cryosphere series is also a poignant reminder of how fragile and vulnerable the various ecosystems of our world are. Especially those that rely on such a delicate balance such as the Cryosphere.
Wilmer has an extensive and impressive cv that includes being chosen as one of Photo District News magazine’s “Top 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch” in 2007 and as part of this year’s V Magazine “Photographers to Watch” spread. Wilmer’s full cv can be viewed on her website here:
