There is no such thing as too much Renate Aller.

On the heels of the Parrish Art Museum exhibition “The Space Between Memory and Expectation” — on view through July 28 — MM Fine Art is opening the new photography show, “Renate Aller: Shared History,” with 10 large-scale works on Saturday, June 29, at the Southampton gallery, located at 4 North Main Street.

The German-born, New York-based photographer is known for her exploration of man’s relationship to the natural world — be it desert sands, soaring mountains or moody oceans — often blurring the line between abstraction and representation as she unveils relationships between profoundly different landscapes.

“Aller first began her initial oceanscape series as a daily meditation, photographing the ocean from her Long Island home almost two decades ago,” according to a press release. “Documenting the subtle variations and moods of the Atlantic, she later shifted her lens to the sand dunes of New Mexico and Colorado, reflecting on how land and sea are intimately linked. Both are in constant motion, and the photographer notes that ‘dunes carry ocean’s memories.’”

Her more recent “Mountain Interval” series continues the conversation of shared history, establishing connections through composition and “creating the illusion of one continuous space,” the release said.

The opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. and the show will remain on view through July 14. For more information, call (631) 259-2274 or visit mmfineart.com.
