Opening: Friday 8 September 2017

Venue: Space A
There are many different genres of photography, and professional photographers tend to specialise in one or two. Alex Attard’s preferred genres are architecture and fine art. He is the methodical photographer. The one who reflects on his subjects in a particular context, studies the light, the prevailing conditions and when all falls into place, he takes his photograph. That is his modus operandi.
Travelling to China, as a guest of the Malta China Cultural Centre, but not wishing to hold up his group while on tour, he was compelled to abandon his habitual rationale to a more intuitive and markedly uncharacteristic approach. This art photography venture attempts to catalog and examine the photographer’s progression whilst working outside his personal comfort zone as he endeavours to produce a series of images to selectively work from on his return. Images that would eventually sit well and hold their own, as a cohesive body of work in a joint exhibition of art works, together with other artists participating in this edition of the “Inspired in China” project, organized by the Malta China Cultural Centre.
Alex Attard will speak about his photography practice as a whole, and how his travel to China influenced his working methods and led him to produce the work in A Wandering Eye.
