"PORTRAITS OF A SOUL" - An Evening with Richard Pilnick and Eric Standop - March 4th

Opening Night - Portraits of a Soul (18:30-21:00, Wed, 4 Mar)

“Portraits of a Soul” - a harmonious marriage between portrait photography and face reading poem.

The uniqueness of the “Portraits of a Soul” can hit the viewers instantly.  Personally, we love it because in any situation, to get a good portrait, it requires the photographer to be so present in the moment.  It is partly a skill to be mastered over the time and experience.  In the present digital era, we often take multiple frames of images and hope that one of these frames has captured that single special moment.

Whereas with “Portraits of a Soul”, it takes a gifted portrait photographer to get a portrait that is so candid and rich with stories and characters captured by an analogue camera that is so simple and mechanical.  The impact of these portraits is amplified by a creative face reader, translating and articulating the richness through poems. 

The romanticism of the images captured by the analogue cameras and the beauty of the hand-printed image is timeless. The authenticity of that instant chemistry reactions captured in the given moment remains untouchable and beyond manipulation by Photoshop and its extended relatives.

Come and join us for a night of creativity – fine art photography, face reading poems and music – and be up-close-and-personal with the photographer, Richard Pilnick, and the face reader, Eric Standop. 

The evening will kick off with some drinks and a presentation at 19:00.
