charles fréger

On display at Ego Gallery (Enric Granados 9) untill January 10th.2010.

The photographs of French artist Charles Fréger are simply beautiful. I'm not mentioning anything like psycological depth or anthropological aspects. No need. Sharply executed, powerful but mellow; these photos have soul to spare and I love them for that.
Would I like one of these for Christmas?
I certainly would!!!

2 Series.

Portraits taken in Namibia. The Herero people proudly pose in their special ocasions' best. The tribal & colonial chich they sport speaks volumes about their past, present and sense of style too.

Military men from different European countries decked out in their Grand Gala uniforms. The Queen's carriage can't be far.
