Andréa Lobel

"I love the way art can 'silence' the moment and protects the fragility of moments passing by. My photography is in black and white. I feel it strengthens the focus and leaves the observation somehow timeless."

"I love the way art can 'silence' the moment and protects the fragility of moments passing by. I've always been drawn to images; visual stimuli make a deep impression. I like to look at images, artwork, people's faces, or the way light and shadow slide into the room. I guess at some point, I felt that words couldn't express to a full extent what I observed. Either I tried to explain too much or perhaps not enough. 

In my work, I communicate my observations, which can be vivid stimuli, sometimes bottled up for months. A facial expression or an evocative scenery that is hard to capture in words. By slightly altering, exaggerating, or choosing an unusual point of view, I try to create joined attention with the viewer. My photography is in black and white. I feel it strengthens the focus and leaves the observation somehow timeless.”
