In December 2017, Arte Globale introduces the exciting new series by Aristotle Roufanis
London, 7 November 2017 — Arte Globale is excited to announce its participating in the 17th edition of SCOPE in Miami Beach, taking place from 5 -10 December 2017. The gallery’s showcase at the fair will mark the first-ever US presentation of the series ‘Alone Together’ by Greek-born, London-based photographer Aristotle Roufanis, which also happens to be the photographer’s first show in America.
‘Alone Together’ (2017) is an ongoing photographic project by Aristotle Roufanis, for which he takes photos of large metropoles in a way that only tiny, individual apartment lights are visible. Hardly recognisable in the dark, some of the world’s most famous metropoles like London, Paris, Miami and Athens are transformed into sprawling canvases of anonymity, where countless people have decided to make their home but hardly connect to each other. The project takes this phenomenon of social alienation in urban centres as a starting point, and adds a positive, optimistic twist to it. To make each little light visible within the vast urban jungle, Aristotle Roufanis has deployed a technique of super high-resolution photography, which is then complemented by meticulous digital editing that can take up to one month for each photo. At ZsONAMACO FOTO, Arte Globale is presenting two images from the ‘Alone Together’ series, one of which spans an impressive three meters from side to side. This enables the viewer to immerse in the photo, and perhaps identify with particular lights or even people seen in the photos.
SCOPE MIAMI is taking place from 5 - 10 September 2017 at Miami Beach Pavillion, 801 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, Florida, USA.. Follow Arte Globale on social media for updates @arteglobale: Instagram - Facebook - Twitter - Google+ - LinkedIn
