At a time of year when we are all looking to escape, Andreas Gursky’s highly detailed and dizzyingly expansive photographs allow the eye totravel to extraordinary places. So it’s no wonder that the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, has chosen the dog days of summer to mount an exhibition of the German artist’s most transcendent images. Opening August 2 (through October 18, 2015),“Andreas Gursky: Landscapes”focuses on color-drenched vistascaptured from elevated perspectives and heightened through digital manipulation. No passport required.
