This catalogue presents David and Steven Aimone’s photographic responses to two beautiful locations—Monhegan Island, Maine and the landscape of Italy. For them, experiencing the landscape and architecture of both alluring places evokes a deep sense of the timeless and transcendent.
David and Steven pursue photography together on Monhegan Island each year, and they have a continuous connection to one another through their work, constantly sharing their experiences and observations. It is this mutual love of photography, and these two places, that inspired this publication and the exhibitions that they offer.
Architectural forms in Italy range from ancient to Renaissance—worn, burnished, abraded, and conveying a deep sense of history. Walking in the landscape, the small hill towns and cities, one can sense the presence of the many have been to Italy before on a quest to breathe in its timeless beauty.
Monhegan Island has a primordial sensibility. The stunning landscape on the back side of the island brags the tallest cliffs on the eastern seaboard of the United States, and they remain virtually untouched due to the preserve set up by Thomas Edison, Jr., now managed by Monhegan Associates.
The pairing of images inside the pages of this catalogue illustrate similarities and contrasts in interpretation by each artist as they engage their own distinctly expressive filter.
