The photography and graphic art. group F11 - Iwona El Tanbouli-Jabłońska and Maciej Jabłoński - has accompanied the Era New Horizons festival for several years with subsequent parts of the cycle Silent Cinema, portraying people involved in cinema. At the 9th festival they will be virtually presenting photos in an e-gallery.
"Our film portraits are simple, like 'the origins' of photography, symbolica, with no redundant details or sophisticated scenarios - the artists write about the Silent Cinema. - The search's aim is to find out the truth: can you somehow expose an artist photographically, does his 'temperament' shown on the photo match the 'temperament' of the film he made? We ask ourselves whether a simple portrait with a slight bit of our interpretation, of invented symbols, will cease to be 'just' a portrait. We want it, along with a capture with the film's title and the filmmaker's name, to become a poster of our story about the film".
Some memories and a tone of freshness: the e-gallery will show photos presented at previous expositions and those made this year. F11 warmly invites you to an e-vernissage on the 23rd July 2009 on the first day of the festival at www.niemekino.com.pl
