Street photographer Roza Vulf exhibits at Rome's Leica Store.
10 April-10 May. Rome-based street photographer Roza Vulf presents Floating World, an exhibition hosted at the Leica Store near Rome's Spanish Steps, from 10 April-10 May.
Vulf, a self-taught street photographer originally from Lithuania, is known for capturing moments by simply translating her perception of an immediate environment - be it underground, street or beach - isolating her characters in the colour and style of a particular moment.
The title of Vulf's exhibition takes its roots from the 17th-century Japanese Art called Ukyio, a term originally translated as "sad world" but whose meaning over time has evolved into "floating world", or fleeting pictures of the world. It is this philosophy, the love of the ordinary, anonymous and unposed, that permeates Vulf’s photography. The exhibition comprises mostly of images that breathe loneliness and profound human thought, drawing a parallel line to the initial meaning of Ukyio-e.
Vulf says: "Our everyday reality is built of moments. Those are valuable due to their fragility and impermanence. I try to capture the moments in a harmonious way, where my sentiment reflects from stranger's emotions. My Floating World holds the diversity of basic human emotions - happiness, sadness, devastation or hope.”
The exhibition inauguration
is on Tuesday 10 April at 19.30, remaining open until 10 May with the following visiting hours: Mon 14.30-19.30, Tues-Sat 10.30-19.30. For details see Leica Store website
