I love how wonderfully connected the world can be at times… Earlier this year I took part in the exhibition “Beneath the Surface” in Orlando, Florida USA. A curator from Italy saw our exhibition in the USA and invited a selection of our pieces to be part of an exhibition in Paris, France!
Inspired by Jacques Prévert's poem Démons et Merveilles, the upcoming exhibition "Ethereal" will be held in Paris from 11 to 13 May at the International Photo Expo, hosted by ImageNation. It is a new photo essay that lies on the edge of dreams, where the surreal meets the material. A series of timeless pictures, a call for contemplation, an invitation to leave a kind of rationality in order to reach imaginary landscapes which are inner and external landscapes at the same time.
Curated by Martin Vegas, the exhibition strives to create a balance between dream and reality exploring the ways in which they are revealing their own moods and intimacy. Ethereal invites you to enter the visions of a collection of talented artists from 30 different countries, whose photographs are regularly exhibited and notably showcased in the most important photo events.

Sadly, I will not be able to attend the opening, or visit the exhibition as it is a bit far for me to travel all the way from South Africa at the moment. So if you pop in to the exhibition, please please send me some photographs of the exhibition space!
