Amilia at the Auggers - Artful and moving debut

Amilia Fixed has a debut exhibit at the Auggers photo gallery.  There are two series exhibited at ground level: Book of Anatomy and PostCards from My Dark.  On second floor (TP to Gallery 2) is the faun series and the reflections series.

The B&W anatomy shots are very real looking, but Amilia assures me it is her own avatar ("i preffer to use myself because i don't bitch about long hours").  She also tells me there is a lot of work involved, and that I don't find hard to believe.

There are more than technical value here though; the pics communicate emotions, and that is rare for these kind of shots.

The emotions comes throught even stronger in the My Dark series - they are dark indeed.  It may be that my background makes me understand them and really feel the pain, but I am also sure that the true understanding of the artist is very contributing to these qualities.

The Faun series almost made me cry - but then I guess I might be just too emotional for my own good?  A story of love - and loss.  

Even so, do yourselves a favour and check out Amilias exhibit - it's a truly artful public debut.
