PRESENTATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN LEICA GALLERY CAFÉ
ADRIANA CAHOVÁ: WOMEN ALOUD
23. 11. 2016 – X. Y. 2017
The exhibition called Women Aloud by Adriana Cahová presents collection of 16 photographs. This set represents years of authors work consisting mostly of feminine faces and nudes. You can enjoy lyrical portraits with a touch of fairy tales or stop in front of louder and darker images taking you for a trip into the deepest secrets of your soul.
All works are handmade with usage of classical photographic materials, photographed on midsized format film and hand-printed in a dark-room.
ADRIANA CAHOVÁ (*2.12.1979)
At the age of 20, Adriana Cahová was the Model for a professional photographer. Wondering what lay at the other end of the lens, she awoke one morning, decided to buy a camera and began photographing the people around her.
Adriana's inspiration springs mostly from those whom she admires and loves, friends, family, and sometimes innocent passers-by. Her photographs range from lyrical portraiture to idiosyncratic fairy tale and fantasy either transposed to domestic settings or lost in realms of pure unfettered imagination. Emotional content is counterbalanced by an innate decency and conservatism, with a frequent dash of melodrama for good measure.
The author is not afraid to show deep and strong motions of human soul from passion and lust to depression and disintegration by displaying bodies or faces. Her preferred method of shooting is Classic (non-digital) using Mid-Format Film. All her black and white works are hand made in a classical dark room. Every print is an original. Adriana herself describes her work as follows: „I love people and I love to show their feeling merged with mine in one simple picture. Moreover I just need to create for my own inner calmness.“
