STATEMENT

“Visual Calculus in Photography” is a one-time reunion of a chosen group of talented photographers who have built for themselves a solid reputation through their personal research, exhibition, writings and publications.

This exhibition emphasis the importance of image construction/composition in photography. A visual space where each photographer places the various elements that they wish to photograph in an orderly/chaotic fashion. A clear aspect of visual balance, a unique set of geometry rules, a distinct set of elements juxtaposition is present for each image.

For each photographer, a complex mental equation gets resolved when constructing their various images. As if, they get both sides of the complex visual equation at hand resolved, in perfect balance. An equation for which only they have the solution.

SUMO Project is taking its Latin-American background to task by integrating the traditions of weaving and basketry into the design of Leonia Luminaire and Thesis Bench.

Textile art has been part of indigenous practices since precolonial times, assuming an important role in the development of human civilization and culture. Beyond its practical uses, textile art has also incorporated rich designs and colours into its more than 10,000-year evolution. Most of these designs, as many other ornamental practices, were used to embellish the skin, tell stories or represent tribal traditions. The use of vivid colours, for example, has remained as an expression of happiness and of the positive outlook that characterizes Latin-American culture.

Who or what inspires you

People inspire me on a daily level. There isn’t a day that passes that our existence here doesn’t fascinate or drive my curiosity. I’m especially drawn to the thumbprint of our time upon the landscape around us. As much as a portrait sitting can feel rewarding from the studio or location setting, I feel there those same principles can be reflected in a landscape or city environment. There is a much to say about your identity by how you live and go about your day, your interactions with the city around you and the place you call home. 
We are incredibly enthralling to watch and observe, never dull moment and a continual source of wonder for me as an artist.
