Four local photographers, all women, will be featured in an upcoming exhibition at L’Entrepot Gallery entitled ‘Through the Lens’, giving visitors a uniquely feminine view of the world-at-large.
From 12th to 17th June, the latest exhibit by L’Entrepot Gallery, in partnership with Art-Box.Store, will feature an all-female line-up of photographers from Monaco and France.
Using their chosen art form, the four artists – Kathrin Hoyos, Jilly Bennett, Bolonie Shuhaibar and Lisa de Rea Frederiksen, look at nature, places, people and animals from their own distinctive perspectives, finding beauty and grace in the every day.
German born, Greek and Belgian-bred, Katherin Hoyos studied to be an architect before moving to South Africa in the 90’s. It was here that she took classes to hone her skills. She moved to Monaco in 2012 with her family and has taken her hobby to the next level, making it her passion.
Jilly Bennett has combined her love of dogs and her love of photography to create beautiful images of man’s best friend in striking ways. Bennett was a breeder and exhibitor of Old English Sheepdogs before moving to the South of France where she has collected strays and abused dogs, giving them the love they deserve. Her passion for her dogs and her work is clear, working in perfect tandem together.
Bolonie Shuhaibar “seeks to awaken this search for the beautiful and the pure that we so readily find in nature”. She is a photographer, painter and watercolour artist who focuses on nature’s beauty and bounty to great effect.
Lisa de Rea Frederiksen got her first camera at the tender age of 10 and hasn’t looked back since. “I capture what captures my heart. I capture beauty,” the artist says on her website, photographing landscapes, street scenes, nature, interiors and locations. This broad spectrum allows her work to fluid and charming in the extreme.
Renowned portrait and dance photographer and author of The New York Times bestsellers Dancers In As and Born to Dance Jordan Matters, will be featured as a special guest at the exhibition.
Additionally, on Saturday afternoon of opening day, a musical performance by players from the Monaco International Performing Arts Centre (MIPAC) and Golden Voices Monaco will be on hand to further delight crowds.
