"So many of Sweeney's photographs are meditations on flight. From the air he sees the ground transpire beneath him. From the ground he lift his eyes into the light. Even when he is not physically on the move, his imagination takes off over earth and sea, beyond horizons.
"Sweeney’s business sees him fly regularly between New Zealand and New York. Over the years he has tracked his movement between these two poles on a modest Canon with everyday Kodak film and a medium-sized zoom. His photos, whether taken at pace or rest, are invariably soaring--and picture nature full of meaning, even as it surpasses understanding.
"Sweeney makes no attempt to trick out what he sees with high-end gear or intricate after-effects. His equipment is middle-of-the-road, but his eye is passionate and his vision of the world, religious."

Stuart Mackenzie, excerpted from his essay in Paradise Road.

Brian Sweeney: Paradise RoadBrian Sweeney: Paradise Road

Published by Charta.
Text by Stuart McKenzie.

New Zealand-born, New York-based photographer Brian Sweeney moves between long-distance reverie and the documentation of pattern and motif in landscape. Of this work, essayist Stuart McKenzie writes that “you can't look at Sweeney's photographs in Paradise Road and find paradise in and of itself. Instead, they carefully send you on your way, deflecting any pretense of essentiality.”
