NUDES > THE 3 X 3 X 3 PROJECT > FUGLSANGHUS - PRESS RELEASE


European exhibition travels to Denmark:

 

"3 x 3 x 3"


the photographic exhibition about sensuality, emotions and transformation

by European master photographers

Pascal Baetens, Jorgen Brandt, Martin Vrabko 

 

3x3x3

 

After the succesful exhibition in Bratislava's Galeria Z in March 2013, the unique 3 x 3 x 3 photo exhibition will travel to the beautiful Fuglsanghus, in Hørsholm, Denmark. The exhibition is the result of a two-year collaboration of three professional Master QEP* photographers from three different European countries.

 

 

At the International Congress of Photography in Lyon (France) in 2011, Pascal Baetens from Belgium, Jørgen Brandt from Denmark and Martin Vrabko from Slovakia decided to dedicate time to think, discuss and experiment photography together, without commercial intent.

 

Their wish to cooperate in communication with each other, lead to a project about sensuality and emotions. Three photographers agreed to meet in three locations for three days and to work under the same conditions, but each in their own style.

 

The first session was held in Lovenjoel, Belgium in June 2011. Later that year followed Copenhagen, Denmark and in Spring 2012 Bratislava, Slovakia. As three musketeers are always four, a fourth session led them back to Belgium.

 

The project involved about 30 women and almost each of them worked with every photographer, experiencing three different approaches, three different energies. The women were photographed in their natural beauty without clothes and make-up, with minimal photographic techniques, what allowed the authors to dig into the real depth of the female soul.

At this Bratislava exhibition, the creators themselves saw the results of their work for the first time, 75 photographs, 25 by each photographer, physically presented next to each other. It revealed the differences and similarities in their approaches, and lead to a renewed exchange of insights/ideas/initiatives. 

 

In Danish Fuglsanghus, the sets of photographs will be shown in 5 different rooms. Some previously unreleased images will be added to the 3 x 3 x 3 collection.
