The exhibition of works by Valentina Milosevic at 4bidgallery titled „Rehearsal“ literally came out of the blue. However, the very project is a continuation of a topic that has been occupying Valentina’s mind since her art residency in Belgium in 2016 within Glo’Art Center where she produced a series of photographs named “In A Doll’s House” inspired by a three-act play in prose written by Henrik Ibsen and a leading

Aged only 23, she is already a mature and recognized photographer who makes a living from her passion. She describes herself as the most impatient and anxious person she knows; but sometimes, for some reason, Silvia is able to direct and focus all her energy onto something – and that’s when

… Art teaches us empathy. Viewed from the outside, I do get the feeling that being an artist is more of a state of mind than a profession… So for many people, not being able to express them through the act of creating is like living in a dull, jaded world. This is why our ongoing wish is for PLATEA to be a platform for artists and creatives of all
In the light of socially prescribed perfection, her pictures look impudently imperfect. They are blurry, with dust particles recorded, under- or overexposed and cropped. They are perfectly imperfect. Real and honest. Human. „Perfection is mandatory today. Everybody can easily build up his “perfect life” on social media through draped moments and edited pictures. I feel very sad of this kind of life presentation because these pictures mostly don’t convey any

Annique Delphine’s work explores the ins and outs of feminism, the complexity of sexuality, desirability and thus the idea of appetite and the way it works to construct female identity. Clearly playing into the discussion around feminism and the movements following, her work is extremely relevant today to the point where artistry meets pop-cultural trends and views. Her latest series ABUNDANCE consists of large scale photographs depicting floral landscapes trifled
A native of Italy, Claudio Galamini was captivated by the seemingly endless spectrum of designs and fonts decorating the Berlin U-Bahn network.

‘Landscape Icons’ is an on-going photographic project by Dutch photographer Janne van Gilst. Initiated in 2014 after graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Art in The Hague, the project explores and deconstructs the Dutch landscape. By using different methods and techniques, van Gilst searches for iconic elements within the environment and then isolates them from the backdrop. Almost like a scientist, she’s dissecting her surroundings and, by doing so,
Looking at Anissa Tijani’s photography is like being warped into a different dimension. A place where reality is the protagonist, yet is seen from an entirely poetical angle. All components harmonize in what is essentially a lyrical process, unique in each picture; a difficult objective to achieve. ‘Street photography is like street poetry,’ explains Tijani. ‘As realistic as it is, street photography is subtler than we think, especially when it
During his go-sees, fashion photographer Thomas Sing started asking the models questions. What emerged was a very personal project for which he has created a website. And is already planning a book. In many artistic careers there is a turning point, a moment in which the artist takes the leap and decides to explore a different path in the everlasting quest to represent reality. Photographer Thomas Sing could have
At the point where many other photographers stop, Daisuke Yokota begins. Despite the generally accepted view on photography as a single slice of time, the young Japanese photographer wonders whether time itself can be represented within an image. The ambition to find a way for photographs to carry time within them led Yokota to experiment again and again until he finally developed a style that sets him apart in today’s
Anyone who has ever been interested to learn about street photography, should have come accross the “decisive moment” term at least once. The term was coined and explained by the father of street photography Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004) who believed that good photography largely depends on good timing. “Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when
