May’s exhibition in the Art Library is a lovely collection of photographs by Amelia Modrak.
Amelia tells us about her work:
I started taking photographs in my late twenties using disposable cameras. I enjoyed taking pictures of landscapes and urban architecture. Later on, in my thirties, I got an Olympus Camera as a farewell gift by my workmates, and I started taking photographs of more things, especially details or things that caused me some type of emotion. Currently, in my forties, I am working on everyday life images that embody the beauty and misery of reality.
Amelia doesn’t digitally enhance or alter any of her images, as she wishes to portray things as they are, hence the exhibition title: The Value of Reality.
The Value of Reality will be on display in the Art & Design Library, 3 – 30 May 2016.
