Originally from Belgium, Antoine Rose is a self-taught photographer who started acquiring the necessary skills to capture and model the light through the lens of his camera at the age of 8 years old. Over time, he developed an ardent passion for photography, travels and the sea. He was the official photographer of the Kitesurfing World Cup for several consecutive years and has traveled around the globe, from South Africa to Istanbul, in order to capture those magic moments. Antoine is a published artist with major international brands who have commissioned his materials for worldwide advertising campaigns. In his latest series, Rose’s approach to photography became more minimalist, trying to convert ordinary scenes, landscapes or objects into pieces of Art.
UP IN THE AIR Series
Antoine Rose has commenced working on “Up in the Air” series in 2002, while he was shooting the Kitesurfing World Cup in Rio de Janeiro; being perfectionist, he dedicated a couple of years on refining his ideas. The latest images of the series, on display in the current show, were shot around the Hamptons shorelines and have recently been featured at the Fotofever Art Fair in Brussels, Belgium and at the 2012 fall edition of the Affordable Art Fair in New York, receiving a very warm welcome from the audience.
UP IN THE AIR will run from November 15 2012 to January 5 2013. An opening reception will welcome you on Thursday November 15 from 6-8 PM.
