A Siberian cold front sweeping across Europe has caused freezing temperatures and snow in the most unusual of places. Such is the case with Athens, where the ancient Acropolis was coated in a powdery dusting of snow. The sub-zero temperatures across Greece threw the country into a bit of a panic, with flights canceled and schools closing.
Award winning American photographer Geof Kern takes our world and turns it upside down. Inspired by post-modernist painters and cinematic actors/directors such as Buster Keaton and Jean-Luc Godard, Kern’s storytelling style has an artistic as well as a deadpan nature to it. His black-and-white photos may remind you of another Met favorite, Rodney Smith, in that both have the ability to create timeless photos that, on closer inspection, seem slightly surreal.
Read a short interview with Geof at Partfaliaz where he talks about his background and how cinema has influenced his style.
