The Japan Series is Andreas Gefeller’s new body of work created in the Tottori Prefecture of Japan. The photos consist of plants modified by human intervention and above-ground power cables against black or white sky, and the images draw aesthetic inspiration from Japan’s taste for minimalism and calligraphy. Continuing his distinct process of digitally constructing many exposures into one single composite image, the photographs “investigate the relationship between natural growth and construction and the formal qualities of natural and man-made structures.”

In light of the recent events that have have deeply affected Japan, Hasted Kraeutler Gallery will donate 5% of the profits for every print sold until May 14 to the American Red Cross Japan and Pacific Tsunami Relief Effort, as well as all the profits from a special edition of Untitled (Cherry Blossoms), 2010, which sells for $300.

Gefeller’s The Japan Series is on display at New York’s Hasted Kraeutler Gallery from March 31 through May 14, with an opening reception March 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. Further details about the show are available at hastedkraeutler.com. It will also be published as a monograph by Hatje Cantz in April.
