Christoph Gielen: The Geometry of Sprawl
German born photographer, Christop Gielen, has lived in New York most of his life. His work looks at infrastructure in its relation to land use, exploring the intersection of art and environmental politics, all taken from an aerial perspective. Gielen hopes to trigger a reevaluation of our built environment, to ask: What kind of development can be considered sustainable?
In addition to exhibiting his work in the US and Europe, Christop writes an array of articles on the subject of infrastructure and the built environment, including The Geometry of Sprawl in the New York Times.
