La Fábrica – Oct/Nov
October 15th. From 7 pm. Upstairs at La Fábrica. Seven photographers, seven very different views on the world. Nearly 50 images ranging from thrown-away objets trouvés to the human condition. From precisionist architectural detail to monumental, explosive abstracts. From inky dark nightscapes to the light and shade of the urban streets to liminal space. The work of seven members of the Al AndaLUZ Photographers Collective from astonishingly varied backgrounds as befits the demographic of the strange place called Orgiva.
From the Netherlands, Charley Werff. Classically trained in photography. Widely exhibited in both her home country and Europe. Lectured on the subject in the USA. Ever surprising in her choice of subject and execution as you will see in this expo.
Franc Enskat, a consummate professional for 35 years. Born in Wiesbaden, Germany. Divided his skills between commercial assignments, celebrity portraiture and the experimental as well as traditional / historic analog processes . Well known locally for his portraits of Orgiva’s denizens. Expect the unexpected.
Holder of an honours fine arts degree in photography from London’s University of Westminster, Nikki Gibbs’ focus is mainly – but not exclusively – on the great tradition of landscape photography to express vulnerability and isolation.
Fred Shively is a (happily) displaced American. His trajectory to photography came via years in the advertising industry working with top photographers, film-makers and graphic artists. His special affinity is for the almost Cubist forms in architecture.
A fine arts graduate of Oxford and photographic documentarist, Trevor Thompson travelled extensively in India and Southeast Asia. Some of the images resulting from these journeys will be seen at the Mira/Look expo.
Another Brit, James Fox, combines street photography with videography and music composition and performance. Expect to see high contrast urban imagery and chiarascuro often captured in London streets.
Originally from Scotland Louis Maclean is all about bold shadows, colours and incisive perspectives. His influences include the Constructivist movement in which all art is seen to be autonomous, translating vistas into a fixed experimentation of striking colour, concrete frameworks and multidimensional layers.
That’s the line-up. A more diverse bunch of artists you couldn’t wish for. Come and check out their work from 15 October until November 21st. Fridays, Saturdays, sundays from 7PM.
