Alexandre Grand ; elegance, lightness and spontaneity

My portraits are characterized by elegance, lightness and spontaneity. They seek to bring up forgotten or repressed personalities, those parts that society has said were not appropriate, what was imprisoned because they labeled it ugly and found it improper. 
Alexandre Grand | elegance, lightness and spontaneity

I have always believed that the eyes are the windows to the soul. The way i observe the world, i can express what is happening in my particular universe.

The photograph brings out my feelings, my emotion and my deepest questions. It is a form of communication with the various selves that live inside my soul. Over the years, the way that i shoot people portrait was transformed. A few years ago I met my wife, an incredible person who shows me every day the strength and softness that exists inside the woman. With her I learn to walk the world in partnership and to navigate the tides of the various goddesses that live within her. 

My portraits are characterized by elegance, lightness and spontaneity. They seek to bring up forgotten or repressed personalities, those parts that society has said were not appropriate, what was imprisoned because they labeled it ugly and found it improper. By giving vent to these personalities, people are liberated from their taboos, traumas and prejudices. There is no illusion of separation. The heart opens to the beauty and wholeness of being. By reverencing your inner self, people claim their powers by asserting to themselves and to the world that they are free. [Official Website]

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

Til All Is Correct by Louise Fago-Ruskin

I like to think of my Great Uncle Moszek hovering  somewhere between floors 8 and 12 of Nalewki Street  9 in the Warsaw ghetto. It is a safe place, this imagined placement of his body. Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.

There is a place that seems so far from here. A place where the sand, the dirt, the rock and the sky live in harmony.

It washes away the dark of the night before and leaves the walls and the road worn like an old, well worked, pair of blue jeans.
