The Gate to Hell

Photographs by Avery Danziger

In 2013, Avery Danziger traveled to the heart of the Karakorum Desert in Turkmenistan, where for five nights he photographed a flaming crater of natural gas. The subjects in this exhibition of 20 large-scale works range from the poetic splendor of moonlit shots that capture the crater’s golden aura to close-up views of flaming geysers, glorious and horrific at the same time.
