About this title:

Synopsis: From Le Gray onwards, the theme of the seascape has attracted the great exponents of photography who have sought in the immensity of the surfaces, in the possibile distance of the gaze, in the atmosphere that envelops and then unites sky and sea, that possibility of training the eye to be both involved and distant, profoundly immersed in what it is experiencing but nevertheless remote, in some third world. An exercise that lies at the basis of the photographers task: to contemplate and to participate. Barbara Luisi is moving in this direction too, combining the acts of contemplation and participation in an independent and original manner, touching with a steady hand the chords of reality at the point where the sea meets the sky; in the long stretches of sand that fade into the distance, in the cold tropical scenes in the light of dawn, in the magnificent and dreadful storms on the high seas, as though they were the notes of a score. A score that exists, its true. But that no one up until now has been able to release, with sounds and images, in such a complete and fascinating way.

About the Author: Barbara Luisi was born in Munich in 1964. At the age of 9 years she began studying the violin. After graduating from "Munich Arts and Music Highschool" she studied the violin at "Hochschule fur Musik und Theater" in Munich and obtained the Concert Diploma. She performed professionally for many years in several leading European orchestras; the Munich Philharmonic, Orchestre du Capitol de Toulouse, Bayerische Staatsoper and she was first violinist in the "Pocci String Quartet." These years of music stimulated and reinforced her sensitivities and her eye for the irretrievable moment. The visual images which she experienced in music were soon applied to her interest in photography. At the age of 17 years she began photography experimenting with a Leica M6 and developed her work in her own darkroom. Since that time she has dedicated her attention fully to photography. She has engaged in portraiture often relating to theatre and music, stillife, nightlight and the human body . There have been many exhibitions of her work; Musikverein in Vienna, Geneva's Victoria Hall, the Semperoper in Dresden etc, as well as galleries in Europe, USA and Japan.
