Riding the wind opens in Camagüey the Photographic November (+ Photos)Publicado: noviembre 10, 2020
Camagüey, Cuba.- One of the proposals of the 2020 edition of the Photographic November international event at the Camagüey sub-site is the personal exhibition Cabalgando el viento, by the American lens artist Paul Murray, which viewers can appreciate in the Republic Gallery 289.
It is a project of 34 color photos selected from a bank of images taken during the last six years in different competitions that are traditionally held in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island (USA).
The curator of the exhibition, Juan Carlos Mejías, a specialist from the Provincial Council of Plastic Arts, commented that “regardless of the sporting aspect highlighted by the exhibition, photography is a waste of colorful frames, images of actions that only last a few minutes or seconds”.
He appreciated that it is as if the artist “was looking at the development of events all the time through the lens of the camera, some of these actions would be lost in the decision to press the shutter”.
Mejías considers that the photographer “ceases to be a simple spectator and in a certain way joins the yacht’s crew from an assistant vessel, since he intuits the possible scenario from the order given at a given moment, or from what he should result of a maneuver ”.
The solo exhibition Cabalgando el viento, by the American lens artist Paul Murray, turns the viewer “into witnesses of a unique sport, whose origins are based on that human decision to conquer the forces of nature, first, perhaps out of necessity, but then for the pleasure of adventure and adrenaline addiction ”.
