Vanja Karas - Eastern Cameos, Portait as a Documentary

Vanja Karas - Eastern Cameos, Portait as a Documentary

Vanja Karas explores the theme of 'Portrait as a Documentary' at the upcoming photographic exhibition 'Eastern Cameos' at the Dissenters' Gallery. It is an extention of her work currently exhibited at the Cottons Atrium as part of the London Independent Photography Annual Exhibition.

This series of unique and striking portraits are from her recent travels to China, Nepal, Cambodia and India where she has spent time extensively photographing the day to day lives of people who spend most of their time on the streets: mainly children, elderly people and people working in street markets.

With her strong, expressive photographic style she establishes a very personal closeness to her subjects creating a perception of intimacy, sincerity and openness. This concept of intimate revelation and eye to eye directness comes across strongly, almost as if there is no lens between the photographer and her subject.

Vanja's ability to establish a rapport with people across the customary divide of culture, language and ethnicity enables her to bring to her still photography a documentary film like look and feel that is also reflected in her work as a film maker and theatre director.

From: 5th November - 30th November
Held at: Dissenters Gallery
Opening hours: Friday - 12 - 7pm Saturday - 11.30 - 6pm Sunday - 11.30 - 6pm or by appointment please call 0793 27 28 112

Hamish Stewart : Terre Aborigène

Terre Aborigène

Terre Aborigène describes both a physical place but also a state of mind, an internal resonance with the land as a living, breathing entity. The 'Dreamtime' - the creation myth of the original inhabitants of Australia - views the landscape not as an inanimate space, but as a living embodiment of the story of creation. The presence of the 'Ancestor Spirits' who created the world is reflected in the shape of the land - its mountains, rocks, riverbeds, and waterholes.

From: 01 September to 31 October
Held at: At PH7 7
Rue des Balkans - 1180 Brussels
