Stunning Cloudscapes Photographed by Carolyn Marks Blackwood

New York-based photographer Carolyn Marks Blackwood has a knack for capturing the natural world and the beauty that lies therein. Shot from her home in the Hudson Valley where light and big sky are at their best, Clouds is a collection of color and texture, endless abstractions that stretch far beyond the capture. Gallerist Alan Klotz says of the work:

The clouds are all about the colors present in the moment, dynamic and ephemeral. It’s hard to photograph clouds, not just because they are moving, nor because of the proprietary hold on them by Stieglitz and Constable, but because in order to be successful with clouds you almost have to get away from their identity…the pictures can be nebulous, but not cloud-like…they can be recognizable, but not common. These are not common, and like their Stieglitzian forebears they are non metaphorical equivalents, aspiring to the condition of music.
