The Sketches of Alfred Hierl
Alfred Hierl’s style involves the extensive use of shadow to capture the mood and somber nature of his subjects. He focuses often on nightfighters and on the flight crews themselves. His works show aspects of the human experience in war, with exhausted pilots and men struggling over the controls and instruments of their aircraft — Hierl’s hand reminds us of the costs of war on all sides.
