Impending global disaster is a beautiful thing in Olaf Otto Becker'snew solo show at L.A.'s Stephen Cohen Gallery.
The German photographer, known for his Romantic
renderings of northern European landscapes, sailed around Greenland
snapping shots of the awesomely deteriorating environment, such as
"Talerua Bay, 07/2005 70° 31'08" N, 51°38'39" W," pictured. "There are
two ways to photograph things. One way is to show all the ugliness,"
Becker says. "I want to show the positive, and you can think if you want
to do something to keep it." Ends April 19, www.stephencohengallery.com
