Andrew May - Angel Series 2009 / 2010



Who of us, walking around city streets, in front of determinated situations has not felt that known deja vu moment or is not simply excited by looking at the beauty, even decadent, of a living or why not sleeping city? How many times have we paused to observe some details, leaving our imaginations gallop trought our minds between buildings and sky.

What happens when a good photographer with great sensitivity and character can stop this?
What happens then if the photographer put the figures that we see only in our dream or imagination, surreal but real figures, which become part of the urban landscape, as if they had always been there, or as if they were there for a chance, only for a moment?
This will happen; our emotions become even stronger and will be caught by the poetry and charm of the urban landscape toghether with a oniric and ethereal surrealism. How to merge this two feeling into one.

Angel Series 2009 / 2010 is the new book edited by Andrew May.
This book is the result of two years of work, 80 black and white photos of great emotional impact.

Andrew May, Award winning Painter, Sculptor, Photographer, 140 Exhibitions locally and overseas over the last ten years Gallery Director Circus Gallery Director Circus Gallery International Exhibition Curator President of the "InnerNortherns" International Photography Group

Chi di noi camminando per strade cittadine, davanti a certe situazioni non ha provato quel famoso momento di dejavous o non si é emozionato semplicemente osservando la bellezza, anche decadente di una cittá che vive? Quante volte ci siamo soffermati ad osservare certi particolari, lasciando la nostra immaginazione galoppare tra palazzi e cielo...

Cosa succede quando un bravo fotografo dotato di grande sensibilitá e carattere riesce a fermare tutto questo?
Cosa succede poi se il fotografo inserisce figure che solo nella nostra immaginazione possiamo vedere, figure surreali ma vere, che diventano parte del paesaggio urbano, come se fossero sempre state li, o come se si trovassero li per un puro caso, solo per un istante.

Succede che le nostre emozioni diveranno ancora piú forti e verremo rapiti dalla poesia e dal fascino dell’urbano e dell’etereo e poetico surrealismo. Come ad unire due realtá.

Angel Series 2009 / 2010 é il nuovo libro pubblicato da Andrew May.
Questo libro é il frutto di ben due anni di lavoro, 80 foto in bianco e nero di grande impatto emotivo.

ADRIAN said...

Laura, so much effort for so little, to me. Maybe because I'm no good but just no vibrations from these with the exception of the angel looking by the window.

Laura: I am your newest follower. I love your site! I also lived in Vienna, and I love the city! Thank you also for introducing this artist!

Andrew Finnie said...

Well arn't those wings just sssomething? And that bridge on the cover looks so familiar. It's good to mix surrealism, reality and spirituality in art.

Thanks for the enlightenment :)
My education is far from complete!

cheers from Oz
