Roland & Sabrina Michaud: A Love without Frontiers
February 4th – March 13th, 2014
Opening reception Tuesday, February 04th, from 7pm -10pm
here once was a man who loved a woman so much he could not be without her. The man, a French photographer named Roland Michaud met a Moroccan born girl called Sabrina in the late 1950’s. They began their life together traveling through the mystic lands of the Orient discovering and documenting its wonders. Their images are poems written with light and shadow, colour and texture, transcending space and time.
They made their way by car and by horseback, by boat and on foot; crossing the dramatic landscape of the Orient and documenting its rugged charms. From ruined cities covered with desert sands to the Pamir Mountains, where caravans of camels walk across frozen rivers in winter, to the Turkestan bazaars along the old Silk Road, Roland and Sabrina travelled and came to love this exotic paradise and its proud peoples.
A collection of Roland & Sabrina’s most famous works are on display in this exhibition spanning a lifetime of travel and dedication. An enchanting journey not to be missed.
