Photographer Peter Funch’s Last Flight is a investigative portrait of life in Atchison, Kansas, at the moment of an explosion. Working with a local photojournalism school, Funch planted 15 cameras at different locations in the small town to record what was going on at the exact moment of the implosion of Amelia Earhart Bridge, a recently condemned structure named for the town’s long disappeared favorite daughter.  vicemag:

Dear friends,

This Summer I will be mounting an expedition with Project Pressure, a Climate Change activist charity, at Mount Baker to document its retreating glaciers and create artwork which aims to further understanding of Climate Change through humanistic narrative. Our project is a unique collaboration between art and science - the result will be a combination of provocative artwork and photographic timelines to be used by scientists and researchers.

Located in the northwestern tip of America, Mount Baker, is a unique place where the effects of Climate Change can be seen through the accumulation of over a century’s worth of photographic documentation. Together we will continue and preserve this historic timeline of glacial ice - not just for posterity but to further our scientific and social understanding of climate change: past, present, and future.

In addition to continuing the timeline documents I will be using a RGB Tricolor separation process that will index time into still images, building a complimentary narrative to Mount Baker’s rich history. The final images will be a synthesis of visual and metaphorical juxtapositions of the seemingly unchanging mountains versus the nature of its fleeing existence.

This both my and Project Pressure’s first Kickstarter initiative, so we really need your support make it happen! You can help us by backing the project on Kickstarter or simply sharing our campaign with your friends. We’re working with a very tight budget so anything you can give will certainly go a long way and you’ll receive some great rewards in return. 

Thank you very much.

Kindest Regards,

Peter Funch

V1 GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS LAST FLIGHT - AN AMERICAN ANTHOLOGY A SOLO EXHIBITION BY PETER FUNCH OPENING: FRIDAY JUNE 06. 2014. TIME: 17.00 - 22.00EXHIBITION PERIOD JUNE 07 – JUNE 28. 2014. ARTIST TALK JUNE 07 IN THE GALLERY AT 14.00 - PART OF COPENHAGEN PHOTO FESTIVAL. On July 2, 1937 the beloved aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean. The same year the Works Progress Administration began construction on a bridge, which would later bear her name. It crossed the Missouri River between Buchanan County, Missouri and, Atchison, Kansas, Earhart’s hometown. Earhart was declared dead in absentia in 1939, the same year the bridge was completed. Evidence favors the theory that Earhart’s death coincided with her disappearance. However her mysterious fate continues to attract alternate speculation - that she survived under a new identity. Some say she became a spy for Franklin D. Roosevelt. Others say she was the infamous Tokyo Rose. Or that she survived the crash and was later captured and executed by the Japanese. In 2007 the Amelia Earhart Bridge was deemed unsafe. A replacement bridge was built and opened for traffic on December 2012. The original bridge was demolished on October 9, 2013. The twisted steel of the old bridge sitting on the bed of the Missouri River evokes the imagery of the probable end of Amelia and her plane. The transposed identity of the new bridge, alongside the old, recalls the myth of her survival. This is the prologue for Peter Funch’s ambitious new project Last Flight: An American Anthology. In 75 photographic works, Funch takes us on a visual journey to Atchison, Kansas and the “event” of the demolition of the Amelia Earhart Bridge. The project combines all of Peter Funch’s artistic talents from intimate snapshots over sober photojournalism to complex, vivid and well planned compositions. The works span from the dramatic epicenter of the event; the demolition shot with drones and the use of multiple cameras to the periphery where life is lived before and after, disturbed or indifferent. These images tell the same story from different points of view. They are all two sides of the same coin. Flies in a spider’s web may be stars in the sky. Religious order may be the order of bees. When paired or presented in the same space, multiple viewpoints prompt a transition of seeing, from what is in front of you to what is not. In the emptiness between the images the story emerges. Funch’s anthropological approach sets the stage for a fragmented framework. A beautiful broken language where the viewer is engaged in creating a narrative. The framework of the project is mirrored in the exhibition installation, where temporary wooden walls have been erected, and works in various sizes – from medium (30x40 cm) to very large (137x187 cm) hung on the walls and placed on the floor - fill both gallery rooms and the basement level. Last Flight is a monumental project in many ways, as one monument is destroyed and sinks into a river, a myriad of themes emerges: a town, a country, a world in rapid transition. Causality, myth, fact, fiction, destruction and creation coexist in Last Flight. Peter Funch’s intention is not to draw conclusions, but rather to open doors and instigate reflection. Peter Funch, born 1974, Denmark, lives and works in New York. Funch has spent the better part of two years researching and producing this new body of work. His seminal project Babel Tales was completed in 2010 and has been widely exhibited and publicized. Funch’s works have recently been shown at Paraty Em Foco, International Photo Festival – Brazil, Fotografisk Center - Denmark, The Eye Is A Lonely Hunter – Images Of Humankind, Photo Festival Mannheim – Germany and Living, Frontiers of Architecture III & IV, Louisiana, Museum of Modern Art – Denmark. We look forward to seeing you.V1 Gallery V1 GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS LAST FLIGHT - AN AMERICAN ANTHOLOGY A SOLO EXHIBITION BY PETER FUNCH OPENING: FRIDAY JUNE 06. 2014.

In the emptiness between the images the story emerges. Funch’s anthropological approach sets the stage for a fragmented framework. A beautiful broken language where the viewer is engaged in creating a narrative. The framework of the project is mirrored in the exhibition installation, where temporary wooden walls have been erected, and works in various sizes – from medium (30x40 cm) to very large (137x187 cm) hung on the walls and placed on the floor - fill both gallery rooms and the basement level. Last Flight is a monumental project in many ways, as one monument is destroyed and sinks into a river, a myriad of themes emerges: a town, a country, a world in rapid transition. Causality, myth, fact, fiction, destruction and creation coexist in Last Flight. Peter Funch’s intention is not to draw conclusions, but rather to open doors and instigate reflection. Peter Funch, born 1974, Denmark, lives and works in New York.

The same year the Works Progress Administration began construction on a bridge, which would later bear her name. It crossed the Missouri River between Buchanan County, Missouri and, Atchison, Kansas, Earhart’s hometown. Earhart was declared dead in absentia in 1939, the same year the bridge was completed. Evidence favors the theory that Earhart’s death coincided with her disappearance. However her mysterious fate continues to attract alternate speculation - that she survived under a new identity. Some say she became a spy for Franklin D. Roosevelt. Others say she was the infamous Tokyo Rose. Or that she survived the crash and was later captured and executed by the Japanese. In 2007 the Amelia Earhart Bridge was deemed unsafe. A replacement bridge was built and opened for traffic on December 2012. The original bridge was demolished on October 9, 2013. The twisted steel of the old bridge sitting on the bed of the Missouri River evokes the imagery of the probable end of Amelia and her plane. The transposed identity of the new bridge, alongside the old, recalls the myth of her survival. This is the prologue for Peter Funch’s ambitious new project Last Flight: An American Anthology. In 75 photographic works, Funch takes us on a visual journey to Atchison, Kansas and the “event” of the demolition of the Amelia Earhart Bridge. The project combines all of Peter Funch’s artistic talents from intimate snapshots over sober photojournalism to complex, vivid and well planned compositions. The works span from the dramatic epicenter of the event; the demolition shot with drones and the use of multiple cameras to the periphery where life is lived before and after, disturbed or indifferent. These images tell the same story from different points of view. They are all two sides of the same coin. Flies in a spider’s web may be stars in the sky. Religious order may be the order of bees.
