Vincent Laforet 'Project Air' on sale with Artful in NYC
There are lots of reasons to be excited about our forthcoming show at The Affordable Art Fair in New York. But one reason in particular is the work of Vincent Laforet, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer who has embarked upon a most extraordinary creative adventure: Project Air.
The world looks different when seen from a helicopter. But when you take that helicopter up a dizzying 7,500 feet and fly over the world's most iconic cities at night, something magical happens. Cities become transformed into abstractions of light and geometry. Streets and avenues become veins of luminescence. The city becomes a network of connections; a circuit board of human life.
Project Air started life as an aerial shoot of New York at night that featured in Men's Health. But as he describes in a recent interview with the New York Times, it was only when he posted the images on Storehouse that things started to go a bit crazy. Gotham 7.5k, as the New York work was called, went viral. People were blown away by these breathtaking views of one of the world's most iconic cities. The city glowed, bathed in blue, orange and white light - and people were captivated.
Responding to the unprecedented interest generated by the New York work, Laforet initiated Project Air - a global tour of 25 cities, as seen from 7,500 feet. He's already shot San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles and the results are spellbinding. The images pulse with energy and beauty, revealing cities as they've never been seen before.
When The Artful Project goes to the Affordable Art Fair in New York - March 25th-29th - it will be the first time Project Air work has been exhibited for sale. And as well as Project Air, Artful is exhibiting some of Laforet's other stunning images of New York, like this aerial view over Bryant Park.
