“Human Nature examines our relationship to the natural world and the human desire for “wild” places — even when those places are human constructions. Lucas Foglia’s lyrical, formally considered photographs challenge the concept that humans and nature operate in opposition, while highlighting the relentlessly uneasy, sometimes absurdly comedic juxtapositions of human technologies and nature.”

“Each artist in TRUTH CLAIM contributes work that in some way pushes, pulls, cuts, abstracts, clarifies, elaborates upon, and explores the medium of photography. This challenge to convention then sets the stage for a re-definition of a medium revealing how the artist’s hand is both limited and limitless in its ability to fool the eye while suggesting ways in which images may reflect truth beyond what they depict. What happens to the integrity of an image when it is unbound from its original form?”

“Deceptive Beauty, a group exhibition featuring the work of three contemporary Chinese artists: Yao Lu, Zhang Wei, and Yu Xiao. In contemporary China, it is difficult for artists to directly engage with their concerns because the government imposes strict consequences on those who challenge censorship. Artists, therefore, must create works that cleverly conceal their opinions on current affairs. These attempts at expression are often simultaneously tedious and playful, as the artists must “dance with the system” by placing hidden meaning and metaphor in their work. With this in mind, Deceptive Beauty features three contemporary Chinese artists who utilize the photographic medium to express hidden meaning.”

“Festival Images Vevey is the first and main biennale of visual arts in Switzerland. Every two years, it presents original photographic exhibitions, outdoors in the streets and the parks of Vevey as well as indoors in unusual venues, and features collaborations with people who ensure Vevey’s status as a “City of Images” all year round.
From 8 to 30 September 2018, based on the theme Extravaganza. Out of the Ordinary, visitors will get to discover, free of charge, some sixty indoor and outdoor projects, some in monumental format, as well as the works produced thanks to Grand Prix Images Vevey 2017/2018.”
Festival Images Vevey takes place from 8 to 30 September 2018 in the streets of Vevey as well as at various local venues dedicated to images.
“In Asia and the Pacific, water, at once, shapes the land and its people. Every day, the rivers and oceans play a central and critical role in the support of all life. No living being can survive without it. However, a child can drown in just one inch of water. Drowning, an all-too-silent epidemic, claims the lives of 360,000 people a year worldwide, with those under 25 representing half of the lives lost. For school-age children, drowning is the largest cause of death in the Western Pacific. Regrettably, these tragic facts have been largely ignored, as drowning prevention receives scant acknowledgement and even fewer resources.
The exhibition will feature powerful photographs from Bangladesh, Thailand and Fiji, three countries which have some of the highest drowning rates in the world. The photos express the inherent dangers to the lives and livelihoods fundamentally connected to water, and the intrinsic challenges regarding sustainable development.
Exhibitions organized for the general public at UN Headquarters in New York are displayed in the Visitors’ Lobby, which is part of the General Assembly building. The exhibit is organized by RNLI International with the support of the UN Group of Friends on Drowning Prevention.”

“Marie Denis has always worked on metamorphoses, those that time or her taste for paradox imprint on materials; those that the artist gives to plants, since Nature is her favorite field.
In Nature des Profondeurs the artist presents works based on her “historical” approach, the interpretation of the plant world, coupled with a daily process: photocopying.”

“Nic’s journey as a photographer goes back long time and for the better part of his career which started in 1990 he has worked with the international news wire service European Pressphoto Agency (EPA) based in Frankfurt, Germany. They supply images to over 1000 of the world’s top newspapers on a daily basis from their team of photographers covering every country on the planet. The work varies from sport to nature, from war to weather, social documentary to entertainment and a lot more in between.”
