Exposition - exploration urbaine

<p> «<em>Look left, look right: nobody. This is the time. Sneak through the hole in the fence, climb the wall. The door is already open. Inside. Stillness and listening. Odors come first. Plic-plop, drops of water in the distance. Noise upstairs. Presence or airflow making a frame beat? First glance. Move like a shadow, watching where the feets are put  and quick inspection of the place. Nobody. Everything seems ok. Bag placed on the ground, tripod unfolded. Opening the bag, zipper resonates like hell. Too bad. Pulling out of the camera and the remote control. The camera is attached to the tripod. The exploration begins ...</em>»</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="05" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/77084/05.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> My <strong>photographic work</strong> is mainly focused on <strong>abandoned places</strong>. I discuss in this way the themes of <strong>dereliction</strong>, <strong>forgetfulness</strong> and <strong>ephemeral</strong>. A work on the memory where the <strong>aesthetic</strong> <strong>primes</strong> on the documentary side. My look on these places could be described as <strong>romantic</strong>, at the same time full of <strong>melancholy</strong> and <strong>feelings</strong>. Moods tell, the emotional charge is often very strong, the place gives as much as it takes. This is an ongoing exchange, I listen to <strong>the</strong><strong> stories it tells</strong>, I permeates its atmosphere. Every wall, every little object left behind is more significant than it has ever been, giving clues about what life that once animated this space was.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="01" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/77085/01.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Through my photographs, I try to <strong>bring out</strong><strong> the personality of </strong><strong>each location</strong> and to show, in particular <strong>through color and light</strong> what we don't see at first glance: the <strong>beauty</strong><strong> or </strong><strong>majesty</strong>, where usually we see only <strong>ugliness and </strong><strong>decrepitude</strong>. I travel through these places with the respect they deserve, no break is ever committed to enter. I stick strictly to the leitmotiv of <strong>urban</strong><strong> exploration</strong>: "<em>Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.</em> "</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="04" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/77088/04.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Suite aux nombreux <strong>commentaires positifs</strong> que j'ai reçu concernant mon travail photographique, j'ai décidé de me lancer sérieusement dans la photographie. J'ai contacté des <strong>galeries d'art</strong> pour exposer et j'ai eu la chance de réaliser déjà <strong>deux expositions</strong> cette année, en janvier et en février. J'ai reçu une <strong>nouvelle proposition d'exposition</strong> de la part de la <strong>galerie Opsis</strong> pour le mois de juin que j'ai acceptée. La galerie étant assez grande, j'aurai l'opportunité d'y exposer <strong>un bon nombre de photos</strong>. Une partie des photos que j'ai déjà exposée feront partie de la sélection, à laquelle s'ajouteront de <strong>nouvelles photos</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Following the numerous <strong>positive feedback</strong> that I've received regarding my photographic work, I've decided to get seriously into photography. I contacted <strong>art galleries</strong> to exhibit my work and I had the chance to perform <strong>two</strong><strong> exhibitions</strong> already this year, in January and February. I received a <strong>new exhibition proposal</strong> from the <strong>Opsis </strong><strong>gallery</strong> for June which I accepted. The gallery is quite large, I will have the opportunity to exhibit <strong>many</strong><strong> photos</strong>. Some of the photos I've already shown will be part of the selection, which will include<strong> new pictures</strong>. My photographs can be seen on my website at the following url:  <a href="http://miso-photography.be" target="_blank">http://miso-photography.be</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="03" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/77087/03.jpg"></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> For my previous exhibitions , I financed completely by myself the print and framing of my photos. The cost for printing on a high quality photo paper is quite expensive, so I decided to ask the help of the community to help me to print new pictures . My funding request consists of two parts : the print and framing of the pictures part, and the promotional part . Here is how I've split the calculation of my funding requested : <strong>Photos:</strong> - <strong>10 photos</strong> in <strong>30x45cm</strong> size on Hahnemuhle baryta paper Warmtone ( print + frame ) : <strong>450 €</strong> - <strong>5 photos</strong> in <strong>40x60cm</strong> size on Hahnemuhle baryta paper Warmtone ( print + frame ): <strong>350 €</strong> <strong>In total , about thirty photos should be exposed.</strong> <u>Cost </u>: <strong>800 €</strong> <strong>Promotional Materials :</strong> - 2000 Flyers : <strong>50 €</strong> - 200 A3 Posters : <strong>50 €</strong> <u>Cost</u> : <strong>100 €</strong> The total cost is <strong>€ 900</strong> , with the part for KissKissBankBank which is <strong>72 €</strong> , it is therefore <strong>€ 972</strong>. The remaining € 28 will be used to fund the transportation of my photographs .</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="02" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/77086/02.jpg"></p>
