Florian Maier-Aichen

Born in Stuggart , Germany, Florian Maier-Aichen studied at the University of California Los Angeles, University of Essen, Germany and Hoegskolan for Fotografi och Film Gothenborg, Sweden. He is known for using both traditional photographic techinique as well as computer imaging in his landscape works. His use of computer imaging to manipulate the landscape, which is often shot from an aerial perspective creates tension in the work and forces the viewer to question the concept of the sublime and beautiful landscape. In 2006, he participated in the Whitney Biennial and his work has been included in many public and private collections.
