About The Photography Exhibition

DETAILS: Life happens in a linear movement in which we often forget the importance of zooming out of it and the beauty of zooming into it. The ‘Details’ series pictorially represents an insightful obsession of material elements that make up the surroundings of our very living. It brings to light elements whose unprecedented aesthetics we tend to miss out because we are actively engaged in a life that is full of care we have no time to stand and stare.

 

With ‘Details’ photography exhibition, Katie Kubrak draws attention to the smallest elements which make up our environment and are often left unnoticed across a variety of themes. She encourages you all to stand for a moment and stare at the world, in witnessing how the individual pieces of the puzzle fall together in creating the bigger picture. A first step in initiating holistic change. Zooming her lens at the material details, Katie explores the aesthetics behind different surfaces and shapes to understand what can appeal to the users’ senses holistically.

Inspiration

‘Leisure’
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
