This event has ended.

ClampArt presents Zack Seckler’s “South Africa”.

In his latest mission to capture stunning aerial views of land, sea, and wildlife, Zack Seckler took to the skies above South Africa in a light-sport aircraft. His abstract, minimalist photographs offer an extraordinary perspective of our planet’s most remote locations. Seckler states: “I liken it to being over a giant canvas and being able to create brushstrokes…” He continues: “From elevations between 50 and 500 feet, the landscape hovers on the line between things looking very real and recognizable and being more abstract. That’s what really draws me in—the line between reality and abstraction.”

Other completed bodies of work include aerial landscapes of Iceland and Botswana.

Zack Seckler was born in Boston, and studied psychology at Syracuse University. Then, traveling solo with a point-and-shoot camera in northern India, his mind opened to the visual world. Upon returning to Syracuse, he took coursework in photography at the renowned Newhouse School. With an internship in a Hong Kong photo studio and editorial work in New York City, he developed his vision for image-making.
