In his work as an artist, John Griebsch explores a series of subjects, including aerial landscapes, architecture, and images of light. "Each series," says John, "reflects a personal vision, a view of the way detail becomes a universe unto itself."
"My aerial photographs present a sense of selective design applied to an extremely small but significant area of the vast landscape over which I fly. I find the need to make geographical sense of the earth, as well as the need to make visual sense of a photograph. I work with ambiguity of scale, and the strong graphic quality of nature, and the hand of man on nature.
Griebsch's images of American and European aerial landscapes depict the pattern, color and design of natural and manmade landforms. Most of the American aerials have been made from John's vintage 1952 Cessna.
