«Captured by Georgia Savva»

Photography Exhibition 

Exhibition Opening: Wednesday, 3rd July 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Exhibition Duration: 3 - 13 July 2019

6x6 Centre for Photography, Limassol

 Georgia Savva presents her first solo photography exhibition entitled, "Captured by Georgia Savva", at 6x6 Centre for Photography in Limassol. The exhibition opens Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019, at 7.30p.m. and it will remain open for the public until July 13th.

Georgia Savva is an amateur photographer. In addition to her passion for Photography, Georgia Savva has also developed a great enthusiasm for music and writing, the latter becoming a refuge, as well as a mirror, whenever she wishes to confront her hidden self on paper.

Georgia Savva longs to be able to call herself a “photographer”, since she strongly believes that an art can hardly ever be mastered.

It is important to find the essence in insignificant things and transform it into something beautiful and meaningful. Movement in Photography has the ability to capture moments in eternity. With my first exhibition, I wish to “expose” myself, as well as to present a distinctive aspect of my existence. Photography is a beautifully laconic way of expressing those much-desired thousand words”.

Free Entrance

Part of the proceeds will be donated to charity.

Opening Hours: Monday - Friday 10:00 - 13:00 & 15:00 - 19:00, Saturday 10:00 – 14:00

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.
