Transfagarasan Highway, Romania - 3 sizes, $10,600-$31,500
Twisting and turning throughout this photograph is the Transfagarasan Highway, a highway built between 1970 and 1974. At the time of construction, the Transfagarasan Highway was used as a military roadway, allowing easy access across the mountains in the event of a Soviet Union invasion. Contemporarily, the highway and adjacent hiking paths are seen as leisure destinations, allowing visitors to move throughout and explore the Carpathian Mountains.
Leventi's dramatic and refined compositions are captured using 4x5” and 8x10” Arca-Swiss cameras to maximize the rich detail in his architectural subjects. Works are printed at the artist's New York studio and mounted to an archival aluminum substrate. The 72x90 inch editions are presented mounted with an aluminum subframe for a contemporary, frameless installation style. 40x50 and 50x60 inch editions are framed in white with non-reflective plexiglass; frames measure 0.75 inches wide and 2 inches deep.
