SENSITIVITY

Sensitivity ‘‘before language” photo exhibition

Opening Saturday Nov 28 11am-3pm

Saturday 28th   November – December 18th

 

“Different experiences, character, education and even gender

Lends people eyes sensitive to life’s cryptic essences;

Which language is incapable of approaching,

But image can capture.

The secret expression of life is a curious charm.”  – Shujin Lui

 

Shujin Liu –Winner of World Press Photo Seminar

 

Shujin Liu is an international photojournalist whose career is twenty years young. She is the World Press Photo seminar 2003 top award winner.

 

Liu has worked as a photojournalist for China News Agency, Geo Magazine (Hamburg), Elle Magazine (Paris) along with several other international media outlets.

 

Inspired by the highly dark and detailed writings of Alain Robbe-Grillet, Liu aims to surpass language with what she captures through the lens.

 

In this exhibition Liu focusses on Gender, Experience and Personality.  She aims to capture her subjects in a bleak authenticity that language falls short of depicting.
