On Nov 10 at 6:30pm visiting GPP FotoWeekend instructor Brooke Shaden will lead visitors through her solo exhibition Vivid Dreams and Fragile Machines hosted at Gulf Photo Plus in Alserkal Avenue.
Initially studying film and literature, American born photographer Brooke Shaden found her passion for telling stories manifested itself most aptly in photographic form. Her series deals with fairy tales of all sorts, featuring bright colors that pop off the paper within dark and desaturated surroundings, creating a character that is bold and striking. Shaden aims to make beautiful that which others find disturbing, to take a simple concept and mould it into something complex and magnetic. Rich with symbolism her surrealistic images are in a way more representational of life, as they contain feelings and emotions that resonate with the viewers.
The Artist guided tour is free of charge and open to the public. After the tour participants will be welcome to engage in a Q&A. No registration is required.
