A new body of photographic work from the fragments and remnants of Judaism in the Middle Ages, taken in the Spanish cities of Cordoba, Granada, Seville and Toledo. Cities where Jews flourished in a society primarily under Muslim rule. Where Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together in a time of tolerant acceptance and great intellectual exchange.
The exhibition aims to foster a greater awareness of this remarkable period of Jewish History.
Twenty-two new photographic works in infrared light using modified lenses to give an unexpected twist to the city of dreams, love and bridges.
Red Venice is an unusual look at the everyday life of a remarkable city. The characters are porters, businessmen, tourists and the ancient streets, buildings and waterways.
Each scene is recorded in light unseen by the human eye and divided into the sharp and the softly suggested by a special lens. This unique combination of subject, technique and composition gives every image an individual appeal and a fresh insight into a wonderful city.
