ILLUSION by Daniel Aron at Galerie du 10 in partnership with Basia Embiricos

Eric de Ville, Babel

Eric de Ville is a Belgian photographer whose imagination conjures up unknown worlds – surrealistic worlds – that he re-creates and photographs.  His approach to photography diverts from the objectivity of the traditional photographer and is more aligned with that of a painter.   The classical photographer sees the subject to photograph, chooses the framing, and then waits for the perfect light or a precise moment.   Eric de Ville, on the other hand, thinks up a theme or imagines the subject, and then interprets those musings in his photographic images.

Daniel Aron, Illusion

Motion pictures have the power to make the audience willingly suspend their disbelief. What is real and what is fake? It is a world of illusion, and the magic of filmmaking begins long before the director shouts “action” and the camera rolls. What the audience is kept in the dark about is the thousands of hours and hundreds of skilled craftsmen it takes to construct sets, environments, atmospheres and props so convincingly we forget we are at the movies. Daniel Aron has spent the last two years traveling the world to bring back images of abandoned film sets. From Hollywood to Bollywood, from Prague to Rome, these cardboard pieces of construction – surviving remnants from film sets – still hold vivid emotional impact. They have become works of art in their own right. Sadly, preservation of these sets is becoming increasingly difficult. Daniel Aron’s images are a tribute to all those behind-the-scene artisans who have crafted unforgettable illusions that enthrall.

Photo Shanghai

Our foray into the Chinese fine art photography market proved to be a huge success at this year’s Photo Shanghai. Thousands attended the 3-day event – high-end collectors as well as photography aficionados – and our booth saw tremendous foot traffic. Our prints were met with great enthusiasm and among the most popular photographs at the Fair were Jean-Marie Périer’s Yves Saint-Laurent, Paris, October 1965 and the Glass Rose by Alexander James.
