PHOTOGRAPHY NOW features a vibrant selection of artists from all over the world, including representation from France, Italy, Puerto Rico, Switzerland and the UK. Even though the artists share their inspiration and creative process; they present a wide range of innovative and contrasting artworks. Through their lens, we are invited to observe, feel and experience different realities.
Elana Cooper presents vibrant works encompassing fine detail, texture, colour, movement and atmosphere alongside emotion to create eye catching thought provoking imagery. With deep contrasts of light and colours she highlights the beauty of our surroundings and small details that are part of our daily life. Arthur Janin’s works focus on abandoned places which he breathes new life to through his photographs. Each space has many stories to tell and Arthur gives them the opportunity to tell them once again. He makes them present again with the idea that the unseen makes us immortal. Also, playing with a duality of absence and presence, Paolo Bongianino challenges our perceptions by printing images on both sides. He offers the audience the opportunity to have a work with two meanings, two faces, even a hidden side. He offers a reality beyond what we can see, a "secret" perhaps only known to the owner and to the inner circle of his loved ones.
You are warmly welcome to join us at the opening of PHOTOGRAPHY NOW on Wednesday 27th May 6pm – 8:30pm at The Brick Lane Gallery – The Annexe.
