Hey there my lovelies,
Welcome back to my Blog!
A quick post to to let you guys know about something pretty exciting happening at the end of this week specifically a fashion photography exhibition entitled Solitude by local renowned photographer Kurt Paris. Exhibition will run throughout
the month of November at Palazzo de Piro.
Exhibition will be officially launched on the 9th November and open to the public as from the 10th. I must say this is the first time for me attending a photography exhibition and I am really looking forward to it and if you guys wish to do something different in the upcoming day I highly suggest you stop by Palazzo De Piro in Mdina to witness it yourself.
What does being in solitude mean to you? Is ‘being’ the same as ‘feeling’ or are those two words, so similar, bridges apart?
Solitude depicts life in a state of feeling alone despite being surrounded by people and information. The constant rush, the constant shifting of focus, of mind stimulation. We live in a world where we are constantly fed information, especially about others’ lives, a world in which a digital presence is a sign of living. In this digital age, we have never been as connected yet
disconnected, almost as if we live in two worlds, both running in parallel, often unsure which one
we are truly part of.
Kurt Paris is an established fashion photographer that has been working in the field for 7 years. Kurt began his photography career working with iStockPhoto, initially as a contributor but eventually landing the coveted role of an inspector. He was involved in both organising and attending various international workshops organised on behalf of istock.
As a fashion photographer based in Malta, Kurt quickly established himself as a prominent figure. His strengths include an uncanny ability to manipulate lighting fused with a creativity and technical approach to all elements of photography . Kurt was awarded the Best Fashion Photographer Award for three subsequent years. Over the years, Kurt has been involved in
shooting numerous editorials and campaigns.
In this latest venture he attempts to bring together his love for capturing moments and scenes with his love for fashion photography and portraiture.
Photos feature Gabriella from Supernova Model Management and various outfits from local designers’ such as Ritienne Zammit, Luke Azzopardi and Rosemarie Abela. Limited Fine art prints on Hahnemuhle Baryta will be available for sale from Palazzo de Piro and online at www.kurtparis.com. All prints & framing are done by iLab Ltd.
Hope to see you guys there #supportlocal.
Until next time,
