Andreas Meer’s work is almost a near perfect melding of sight and site, sound and environment. Working primarily in digital media, he is known to take photos of urban settings, especially musical concerts and the performers associated with them. Looming large in Meer’s current work is New York City—a site which fascinates him with its energy, architecture, and the layered diversity of its environments and lifestyles.

Generally capturing moments outside the confines of the artist’s studio, Meer’s photographic palette ranges from bright purple doors and neon in daylight, to more somber, even filmic black-&-white overtones. His photograph Coney Island, for example, is one of his more filmic works. While ostensibly depicting a site in Coney Island, what viewers see is less a place of leisure and fun than an almost foreboding infinitude, as the angle of the picture makes the series of columns supporting the boardwalk look like a hall of mirrors. Yet we also sense how the photographer lends a delicate and compassionate eye to this otherwise alienating scene.
