Painting by Plane, curated by UMBC students Valentina Anyanwu, Maggie Frost, Nicolle Konkel, Selene LaMarca, Sheila McFarland-Holt, Adam Stevens, and Kelly Thompson, features the work of aerial photographer Peter Stern. Inspired by both landscape and color, his photography is reminiscent of abstract paintings. The work presents the similarities between the landscape and textures of paint.
In Peter Stern’s photography, viewers see the Mid-Atlantic from a unique and intimate perspective. Flying low, slow, and alone in his small airplane over the coal mines of Pennsylvania and the coastal landscapes of the lower Eastern Shore, Stern conveys an intimacy with his subject that echoes his deep personal connection to the region.
