EXCLUSIVE LUNCH AT SPRING RESTAURANT AT THE INVITATION OF PHOTO LONDON FAIR WITH GUEST OF HONOR FIAMMETTA HORVAT
As a member of the advisory board of Photo London, Anne-Pierre d’Albis Ganem is delighted to invite the members of THE CLUB to an exclusive lunch at Spring restaurant at the invitation of the fair, with guest of honor Fiammetta Horvat.
As part of this year’s Public Programme, Photo London presents a homage to the legendary photographer Frank Horvat (1928 – 2020) curated by his daughter Fiammetta Horvat. Throughout a career that spanned over seventy years, Frank Horvat was constantly experimenting and adapting to new technologies. His work frequently transcended the prevailing photographic orthodoxy. The result is image making of the highest order: work that is diverse and considerably more complex than it seems at first glance.
Commenting on the Photo London exhibition its curator, Horvat’s daughter Fiammetta who runs the Studio, says: ‘Thanks to Photo London, my father’s work will be celebrated and remembered in a city that mattered greatly to him. Coming back from years spent in Pakistan and India he settled in London in the late ’50s and always recalled this period as the most exotic adventure he had experienced. The British people remained a mystery to him till the very end. I hope this introduction to him will mark the beginning of a new dialogue with the United Kingdom. For the London exhibition, we present two emblematic series that are a perfect illustration of Frank Horvat’s approach to photography: his fashion images where he introduced a sense of naturalness and spontaneity into the very sophisticated and mannered world of fashion magazines; and his images of Parisian cabarets where he finds poetry in the seedy nightlife of the city. In both worlds, he proves photography can transform and transcend reality. What always matters is the eye and the intention of the photographer.’
