This November as Paris becomes the capital of photography, Galerie E.G.P is pleased to present its first solo exhibition of photographer Rachel Rom, aka Romina Shama.
The Swiss-born artist is known for her black and white, cottony and often blurred photographs that boast a distinctly soft and cinematic style. Her sole reliance on the raw beauty of natural light and silver prints adds a subtle yet insightful dimension to her portraits.
Using the skillful practice of re-photography and poetic montage, Rachel Rom creates an eternally unfinished installation, a seemingly infinite sequence of photographs which push the notion of confusion between reality and the photographic image to the extreme.
The artist, whose work was exhibited in "Tarantel" at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin in 2013, plays with the illusion of distance and eternity. She creates a void between real life and its representation the result of which is a fresco that propels the spectator into a dizzying interminable spiral. Her innovative use of the photographic medium invites us to reconsider the way we approach artistic performance and leads us to question the very nature of art itself.
