(PT) JULIO GALEOTE http://bit.ly/2bFx2Du Tropical Ornament Tropical Ornament apresenta uma combinação de imagens de estúdio, provenientes dos arquivos da imprensa de Miami, no qual se busca um processo de construção e mudança de uma cidade que parece dedicada ao ócio. Com esta representação de objetos procura-se ensaiar o carácter de um lugar em que tudo é fachada e nada parece real. VICTOR ENRICH http://bit.ly/2bQ9ucB City Portraits Autor vencedor do Prémio de Fotografia EI AWARD 2015, Enrich apresenta a série “City Portraits" que resulta de um amplo relatório fotográfico, feito durante uma longa jornada de 6 anos, através da Europa central e do Médio Oriente. Com “City Portraits” é possível perceber como ao longo dos anos as técnicas de manipulação gráfica se tornaram cada vez melhores, enquanto os processos conceptuais foram ficando praticamente na mesma. (ENG) JULIO GALEOTE Tropical Ornament “Tropical Ornament” consists of a first stage of documentation of historical images from Miamiʼs photographic archive, focusing on historical images from the local press, which seeks the process of construction and change of a city that seems dedicated to leisure. A second image is constructed in study, with objects related to the image that the city projects abroad. With the representation of these objects is portrayed the character of a place where everything is facade and nothing seems to be real. The relationship between reality and fiction and its representation are the concepts on which this project is based. VICTOR ENRICH City Portraits “City Portraits” (2007-2012) is a series of pictures result of a selection of a wider photographic report made during a 6 year long journey that Victor Enrich made through central Europe and the Middle East. From among all the locations, a special mention goes to the cities of Riga (Latvia), TelAviv (Israel) and Munich (Germany), due to longer stays compared to the other ones that were visited. This importance of this series relies on the fact that it represents the first serious and long term experiment in Victor Enrich’s artistic career even though none of the belonging pictures were created to be part of a conceptualized project. Instead, each of them acted as a trigger to produce the next one. Thus, in the series it’s possible to check how, over the course of the years, the computer graphic techniques got better and better, while the conceptualization processes were basically staying the same. The locations depicted in the series correspond to buildings in front of which Enrich used to pass in his daily walks. Walks that were meant to enhance the process of urban exploration, which can be considered one of top Enrich’s leisure time activities.
