For the last couple of weeks I have been getting ready for a joint photography exhibition with my good friend and a very talented photographer Eddie Hyde. Over the few years we have known each other we realised we had a lot in common. The way we feel about capturing the beautiful world we live in especially. Therefore we decided to put our images together to create an exhibition with focus on what is most important for us: being in the moment and finding poetic beauty wherever we happen to be.
As some of you know, this year has been extremely difficult for me as I lost my Mum. I would love to dedicate my part of the exhibition to her. She loved many of the places that I captured and am exhibiting. We shared many happy memories that are deeply etched in many of my photographs. Always in my heart and in my memory.
Please see below more details about the exhibition.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. But can we truly compare them? It really distils down to what kind of thousand words. Poetry, words strung together in a way deemed beautiful, can evoke equally powerful emotions as a breathtaking view of a stunning landscape. They cannot be separated from each other, they are deeply intertwined. A poem is a creation of beauty in words that cannot be seen. A picture is a poem that cannot be heard. Both use their own language to express impassioned feelings and emotions.
As the title suggests, this exhibition is focused on finding poetry in the world that surrounds us and conveying it through photography. It brings together works of two contemporary photographers, Edward Hyde and Vanda Ralevska. The common denominator for both artists is their endeavour to capture distinctive atmosphere and the poetic essence of a place they find themselves in, whether it is by the sea, in a woodland, in the countryside or in a city.
