If I were to define the style and methodology of my photography, it would be a difficult task to categorise it into a single genre. This is because I have an affection of two contrasting approaches, which happen to lie at either end of the photography rainbow. At one end of the spectrum is a carefully thought-out process to precisely photograph architecture and interiors for my commercial clients, and then at the other end, it is about discovering new cultures and being quick-on-the-draw with my retro-looking rangefinder camera, capturing instant moments of intrigue and emotion.
Over several years, I have amassed a huge trove of images from my intrepid travels, of which I have had colleagues attempt to sway me into exhibiting on numerous occasions. When the possibility to exhibit at FV2 Architektur’s Studio came about, I pounced at the opportunity.
So what is it all about? Well, the theme is centred around how the culture and identity of people are evident in the urban context that they have built around themselves. It is a photographic study of colour and texture of different cities around the world while observing daily humorous or intriguing curiosities that occur in and about these urban environments.
5% of print sales will go to a worthy cause. The chosen charity, Railway Children, is in the aid of children that live on the streets in India, Africa and the UK.
To visit the exhibition after the Vernissage, drop by at FV2 Architektur’s Studio Monday to Friday between 09.00-19.00 at the following address: Google Maps Directions. It is not a staffed gallery, therefore it is advisable to call ahead to ensure someone is there: Felicia Specht - 0179 1280087. The exhibition will also be open on Monday 10th June 10.00-18.00 (Pfingstmontag). Visits and private tours that fall outside of these time can be made upon request.
