Itxaso: “Out of Africa”, a collection of 12 photographs at Micer Studio
On Saturday November 12 opens at the Art Gallery of Pollença Micer Studio “Out of Africa”, a collection of 12 photographs “of Itxaso Mediavilla Murray.
The inauguration, which will be attended by the artist, will be at 20 pm and the exhibition will be open until January 14, 2012.
The photographs in this series were taken during a trip to South Africa. Itxaso was fascinated by the serenity of the animals in their own environment, with their families and their rituals. Although the pictures were captured in color, the photographer decided to use the black and white in order to preserve the character of animals, but at the same time leaving some of the original color to give each photo its own personality.
“My first memories are posing in front of the camera from my father. Since I was very young I had my camera and started taking pictures. The camera is always with me, capturing my life and my loved ones. Over time I have been educating the eye to the camera and capturing moments in time and as they occur. “
