2014…

Good morning!…After a profound year of change and reflection for many, I welcome 2014 as the year of consolidation. To celebrate sometimes is to take a step forward, or simply to take a step, but celebrate at last. Change is inevitable and embracing it means treading on new waters, and learning to cope with new found confidence. Among some of my decisions (no pressure…lol!) I opted for launching a series of architectural black and white photographs; 10 to be exact. I had them critiqued, undertook minor corrections, and finally had them printed. Beautiful Baryta paper especially formulated for BW work…….intense blacks and exquisite whites, contrasts and subtle lines showing to the naked eye. I was pleased then, I am pleased now.

Below lie the works described. It is my plan to locate suitable gallery space to show them, Paris (where I reside) is my first choice, but a home is a home, and as told to me by friends and colleagues, no serious offer can or will be refused. I have had the fortunate luck to show in Buenos Aires, Los Angeles and Catanzaro (Italy) – what’s next? I don’t know, but confidence and perseverance will dictate the path, and trust will create the right partnership. Please enjoy, thank you for coming and, as it has become a necessary custom nowadays, all works are part of my domain and are thus copyrighted.

A little monochrome…

Good morning!…this time I’m posting a theme that I love…..passages. Again the HALL, with a light texture and processing, but focusing on a beautiful bit of 5 o’clock light. I love the leading lines that Gehry works with in his designs, the sense of hope and discovery; this being no exception. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for visiting.

Just…

Oh, there is another piece on passages/transitions further down if you want to check.

Thank you,

Simple Vistas…

Good morning!…..today I am attaching two photographs taken March 2012 while visiting my main ‘hang-out” in Los Angeles – Gehry’s Concert Hall. Again the emphasis is on the lines and their flow and they intend to present the strength of the  ‘metal’ in two different ways….at night (with the sky totally blackened / monochrome) and during the day, softer, calmer. Again it pays to return to a certain site over and over to push the boundaries of imagination and see what the day tells you; how the light plays its game on that day. I often do that, return to the same place many times to see what I forgot, retrace my steps, talk to the building sort of thing. Hope you enjoy them……
