Ahae, The Extraordinary within the Ordinary
The Korean photographer Ahae has just opened The Extraordinary within the Ordinary, an exhibition of 220 recent photographs in specially constructed galleries at the Orangerie Hall of the Palace of Versailles, near Paris. The show, on view through September 9, is part of the Versailles estate’s celebration of the four-hundredth anniversary of the birth of landscape architect André Le Nôtre, who designed the palace’s grounds. Ahae, who shoots all of his photographs from a single window, captures pristine natural forms and the animals that pass through or inhabit them. Ahae works from dawn to dusk, and in all seasons, and the photographs he creates distill the landscape to moments of movement, shadow, and light.
This is the artist’s second exhibition in France, after a successful presentation last summer at the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris. For more information about The Extraordinary within the Ordinary, please click here. For more information about Ahae, please click here.
