Lowcountry Artist Gallery Presents “Timeless Metropolis” Exhibition by Ivo Kerssemakers
Charleston, South Carolina, Mach, 2021 – A new photo exhibit by photographer Ivo Kerssemakers entitled Timeless Metropolis will open April 2nd, 2021, at Lowcountry Artist Gallery. The exhibition will feature the artist’s iconic black and white long-exposure photographs of London, Amsterdam, and New York City.
Kerssemakers signature long-exposure technique records a scene over a period of time. Everything that moves, such as people, birds, clouds, and cars, disappears. The result is ethereal images of historical cities untouched by humans.
“I am attracted to old architecture,” Kerssemakers says. “Long exposure removes visual noise from these historic environments, and lets the viewer contemplate the important architecture of these cities without distraction.”
The exhibit is open to the public and will run through the end of April.
