Sharon Harper’s work jettisons this idea of the photograph as a seamless window to reality and replaces it with a magic mirror, a transformative surface that is capable of making the invisible visible and the intangible tactile. Her photographs, which often involve the sky as a test bed of human perception, have less to do with what we see than what we don’t see or, perhaps more accurately, what we want to see or try to see, but can’t.”
—Stephen Pinson, Curator of Photography at the New York Public Library

Christina Seely is a photographer and educator based in the San Francisco Bay area. She currently teaches at California College of the Arts in the photography, interdisciplinary and graduate programs.

“The first book on the work of Sharon Harper, From Above and Below, features ten years of experimental photographs and video stills of the sky—images of stars, sun, sky, moon and clouds. Sharon’s photographs within this volume draw on scientific and artistic uses of photography to illuminate the medium’s ability to simultaneously verify empirical evidence and record the artist’s subjective relationship to the natural world.”

Todd Hido, in conversation with Sharon Harper, Associate Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies, Harvard University

Todd Hido makes night photographs of suburban neighborhoods, using long exposures to capture the effects of fog, and light from streetlamps and windows. Hido’s project relates closely to Feininger’s atmospheric night photographs of the Bauhaus building and the surrounding neighborhood.”
