ABSTRACT I BY CHRISTOPHE von HOHENBERGJuly 2020 — New York, NY — Leonard Tourné Gallery is pleased to present Christophe von Hohenberg’s “Clarity through Abstraction: A Tribute to Mark Rothko.” The exhibition is viewable online and by appointment and runs through July 31, 2020.
This limited edition print series is the culmination of years of experimentation by the artist with his Nikon F3 SLR film camera. Inspired by abstract expressionism, von Hohenberg aspired to create Color Field Photography using only his camera in the natural environment. Each work in the “Clarity through Abstraction” series is a naturally occurring image shot on film and produced without the use of props, artificial lighting or retouching of any kind.  
Christophe von Hohenberg is a fine art, portrait, documentary and lifestyle photographer. In 1979, he was discovered by American Vogue and his photographs were displayed in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Since then, he has worked with InterviewArt ForumVanity FairGeo, German Rolling StoneThe New York TimesFortuneHamptons Magazine, German Vogue and French Vogue. His critically acclaimed book, Andy Warhol: The Day the Factory Died, received the Photo District News Photo Book Award and the AIGA Book Award in 2007. He has since published Shadows of the Gods, which documents Mexico City's vibrant creative energy and burgeoning visual arts community, and Another Planet: New York Portraits 1976-1996. His forthcoming book featuring photographs taken in the Hamptons is due for release in 2021. 
“Clarity through Abstraction” is currently available for viewing and purchase on our new website and appointments may be made to view the works in person at our Fifth Avenue location.  In the wake of COVID-19 and other global events, Leonard Tourné Gallery is donating 50% of our profits to non-profit organizations supporting the arts and strengthening our communities during these difficult times. This policy will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
