We have been following with updates on the blog from Irene Kung about photography exhibitions featuring her intriguing photographs.

We just received news of the upcoming exhibition ‘Verso Oriente’ at Forma Galleria in Milan that opens December 4th, and features new works from her time in the East. Irene brought her intriguing perspective along with her through the various stages of her journey from Greece to Russia via Turkey and Egypt, finally reaching the majestic buildings of northern India

Irene’s work teaches us to see the reality of everyday life with different eyes. Our cities, monuments, and otherwise familiar sights are transformed into dreamlike and mysterious appearances by her photographs. In this exhibit she has abandoned the strict contrasts of black and white and has started to introduce subdued colors. There are hints of blue color on the Turkish mosques and gray transforms the ornate Russian buildings.

Ci sentiamo presto, Lina
