A photographic exhibition on the French artist and filmmaker Ann Ray.
The exhibition bears witness to numerous meetings between Ray and numerous personalities from the art world, from actors to writers, choreographers, dancers, filmmakers, composers such as Willem Dafoe, Alexander Mcqueen and Michail Baryshnicov among others.
The photographer’s indication was to pose with her eyes closed, with the aim of communicating a subliminal truth that requires the mutism of sight, seen as a form of interference. It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul but perhaps there may be a channel to decipher the most intimate thoughts, dreams and feelings. This is the artist’s attempt to offer an intuition of the abstract, of the invisible and of the unspoken, to arrive at a deeper understanding of human nature.
