Mirrors and Windows by Gabriele Galimberti and Edoardo Dilelle
The portrait series draws insight into the lives of women across the world based on their intimate living spaces.While some have countless possessions, living in the lap of luxury, others are clearly not as fortunate.
The project states: “In a world that is increasingly shaped by global standardization and IKEA aesthetics, this work explores the rooms of the conventional and the eccentric, the rich and the poor, the mother and the single, the pious and the unbelieving, the sports-obsessed and the shopping-addicted, the tomboy and the girly-girl, the tidy and the shambolic… These bedrooms are the mirrors of the history, personality, culture, obsessions and social status of the girls that occupy them, but are also unique windows into these young women’s worlds.”
Shared by West Coast Falconry on Facebook: “Here is a priceless photo! Neither birds are West Coast Falconry’s. A captive Harris Hawk at a museum up north was eating it’s rat on a perch outside when a wild female kestrel attempted to steal the rat. She left unharmed and empty taloned. Perfect photo timing = priceless image. :)”
Born in Los Angeles in 1977, the African-American artist works within the boundaries set by the Old European portrait masters like Titian. Wiley’s twist is that he frames the black cultural experience within the pomp, majesty and enormous gilded frames of white art history.
