Capturing the world through photography, video and multimedia

'We Were in Sicily' photograph exhibit by Rachel Roze through July 25

‘We Were in Sicily’ photograph exhibit by Rachel Roze through July 25

Photographer Rachel Roze’s “We Were in Sicily” is not subtle at first glance, but take a longer look, because you are going to want to, and you will find layers upon layers in a singular composition.  The work was all done on film, not Instagram, and has a quality that feels vintage, although it was made during a 40-day trip to Sicily, Italy, in the summer of 2011. The work has sexually charged overtones, while the muted tones give an old-world romance quality. However, I urge you to not only focus on the obvious ones. Roze views the city and her perspective offers a sense of familiarity and complete immersion that is unlike anything a tourist could accomplish.

This show coincides with the show “Three Italian Artists in L.A.,” which features Marcello Pozzi, Sebastiano Ciarcia and Dominic Detorre.
