GREENVILLE — Fotografiska, a non-traditional series of photographic art museums, is partnering with Autograph Collection Hotels to display its new collection, Impressions, throughout the world — and is now on display at downtown Greenville’s Grand Bohemian Lodge.
The exhibit will run through Sept. 8.
Four artists-in-residence at Autograph Hotels in Berlin, Tokyo, Oklahoma City and the city of San Pedro in Belize gathered collections centered around the themes of inspiration, vibrancy, emotions and seeing the unseen, according to a news release announcing the series.
Jonas Bendiksen walked the streets of Berlin while he stayed at Hotel Luc, looking for spontaneity in his collection, small moments that can tell whole stories about the scene they are set in.
In Belize, Cristina de Middel pursued how the light, nature and color of San Pedro affected the characters of the city. Her work makes fictional scenario come to life with real characters and place, showing that the way we see things may not be as they truly are.
While living at The National in Oklahoma City, Gregory Halpern took his time learning the location, placing himself in unexpected parts of the city: a boxing gym, barber shop and rodeo. His photography captures the young, big-city feel, and how nose rings and nightclubs clash and blend with the tradition of wide open spaces, highways and cowboys.
During her stay at Mesm Tokyo, Alessandra Sanguinetti took the plunge beyond the surface of Tokyo in search of people and secrets, revealing what the veneer of the city doesn’t show. Sanguinetti uses contrast to reveal the rich reality of the interior world.
“Impressions is a special project in showing the individuality of both inspiration and of the approaches that artists take to manifest their creative visions into being,” Fotografiska’s Global VP of Business Partnerships & Development Karolina Dmowska said.
The collection started its journey in New York in July and then came to Greenville.
