Thomas Bredenfeld introduces "Silentium"

09.2017 - For the season start of the Frankfurt galleries, Galerie Arte Giani presents the new work "Silentium" by Thomas Bredenfeld, consisting of painted and photographed pictures. The event takes place from the 6th of September to the 20th of October. For his works, the native Viennese Bredenfeld chose the mountains early on in his career. In the last few years, he often has climbed up at night, to return with images of sunrise and sunset, dusk and dawn, and starry skies.

The recording takes several hours in the appropriate weather and at the right time, and it opens up a whole new picture to the viewer which exceeds the normal perception with one's own eyes. The exhibition "Silentium" summarizes the works that have been created since 2011. The vernissage on the opening day takes place between 6:30 pm and 9 pm. On 9th and 10th September, Thomas Bredenfeld talks about his fascination of the mountains and the technical challenges of panoramic photography.

With the ALPA GON tripod head, the photographer has been offered a new tool for these challenges since spring. The GON has already demonstrated its suitability in panoramic photography, as can be seen in the pictures. Together with Thomas Bredenfeld, ALPA is now gathering further insights into the additional development of the GON in various projects.
