HOMO URBANUS EUROPEANUS Photography Exhibition by JEAN-MARC CARACCI

6x6 Centre for Photography is proud to present French photographer Jean-Marc Caracci's photography exhibition entitled Homo Urbanus Europeanus.

The series of photographs “Homo Urbanus Europeanus” has been the subject of 29 exhibitions in 22 countries, across Europe and the world. The exhibition was first presented in Cyprus within the framework of Pafos 2017 European Capital of Culture, and now travels to Limassol.

Jean-Marc Caracci has travelled to 39 European capitals (including Nicosia in 2015) to photograph "the man in his urban environment" or, according to the artist, "the urban being".

Every photograph of the series “Homo Urbanus Europeanus”, by the accuracy of its framing and its crisp style, is a hymn to the magnificent citizen. This human presence, captured with fineness, gives the city an unexpected beauty and majesty.

"Whilst taking photographs in a city, I see myself as a private detective, investigating the comings and goings of humanity, similar to a biologist observing movements inside a cell. Capturing people in their urban environment opens a way to explore my own humanity".

 - Jean-Marc Caracci

About the Photographer

Jean-Marc Caracci was born in Tunisia, his heritage is 100% Sicilian, but he has lived in the south of France, Montpellier, since his early childhood. With help and support from his elder brother, he started photographing and using the darkroom at the age of 15. When he was 20, he joined the army and was fortunate to be appointed the official photographer of the regiment. Being a self-taught photographer, during his time in the army he developed his skills and technical expertise in photographing people. He has always focused on Man as a representation of belonging, and rarely as a social object. His work is strongly influenced by photographers like Henri Cartier Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Raymond Depardon… and also by the American painter Edward Hopper.

"ANIMA" Photography Exhibition of Digital Visual Effects by Pavlina Bargili

Exhibition Opening: Tuesday, 21st November 2017, 7 p.m.

 Exhibition Duration: 21/11/2017 - 4/12/2017

 6x6 Centre for Photography, Limassol

6x6 Centre for Photography presents the photography exhibition ANIMA, by Pavlina Bargili. The exhibition, which exclusively presents photographs of digital visual effects, will open on Tuesday, 21 November 2017, at 7p.m. and will remain open to the public until the 4th of December. The exhibition will be inaugurated by Mr. Andy Bargilly, scenographer.

Language and words are often imprecise - they can neither express nor describe the love, the loss, the tragedy or joy felt deep inside the human soul. Working with digital photography, capturing faces is, in fact, an act of profound intuition. "I create for all those things that deeply matter to me. I create to challenge this intuition; a type of work that gives me access to a depth of emotions, to all the complex feelings lying beneath those faces. Their soul - anima", the artist mentions.

Pavlina Bargili comes from Famagusta. She studied jewellery design in Austria and is the owner of the jewellery store in Atlantica Miramare Hotel in Limassol. This is her first exhibition titled Anima.

Opening Hours: Monday - Friday: 10:00 - 18:00 , Saturday: 10:00 - 15:00

Exhibition Sponsors: American Academy and Karolin Tours

ΣΥΝΟΨΗ
Ο Chris Hondros ήταν ένας από τους καλύτερους φωτογράφους της γενιάς του, ο οποίος εργάστηκε σε εμπόλεμες ζώνες. Είχε καλύψει κάθε σημαντικό γεγονός στον πλανήτη κατά τη διάρκεια της ενήλικης ζωής του. Αρχίζοντας από τον πόλεμο στο Κόσσοβο το 1999, ο Chris έζησε από πρώτο χέρι τον πόλεμο και την καταστροφή για πάνω από 10 χρόνια, μέχρι και τον θάνατό του στη Λιβύη το 2011.

Chris Hondros was one of the best conflict photographers of his generation, having covered practically every major world event of his adult life. Beginning with the war in Kosovo in 1999, Chris served as witness to more than a decade of strife and conflict before he was killed in combat in Libya in April, 2011.
