For her 4th solo exhibition at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery, Brooklyn-based French artist Karine Laval presents a selection of new photographs as well as a video installation. “Altered States” refers to physical transformations, altered states of consciousness and perception and challenges the way we see by combining the elements of photography – light, perspective, chemistry and optics. A grid of nine photographs, pictured above, is the largest work in the exhibition, and highlights Laval’s experiments with Mylar. “Altered States” opens at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York City on Thursday, April 18th and runs through May 24th.

Josef Hoflehner began his Jet Airliner series in early 2009. Captioned “Air France Airbus A340-300, arriving from Paris-Charles de Gaulle,” this photograph from 2011 was captured in a wide-angle format as a plane roared over a beach on its way to land. The scene is completely unstaged, making this moment all the more extraordinary.
“Jet Airliner #44″ is part of a group exhibition at Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York that runs until September 10.
