Paris photographer coming to THELMA
Pictures allow the young Paris photographer Maia Flore to live in another reality.
“If pictures seem something bizarre or surreal, I feel it could be so true,” she said.
Flore will experience another reality when she spends time in Fond du Lac to coincide with the opening of her exhibit at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) this week.
A free reception is set for Thursday, January 9 at 5 pm. Flore will be there to discuss her work. Her exhibit called “Elevated,” or “Elevee” in French, at THELMA will be open until March 30.
In addition to her photography on display at THELMA, Flore’s work has appeared in The New Yorker magazine and was featured on the cover of the daily newspaper Le Monde. She has done commission work in the fashion industry for designers such as Louis Vuitton and Coco Chanel.
“Elevated will give the Fond du Lac community a great chance to experience wonderful art as well as embrace their French roots,” said Kevin Miller, THELMA executive director. ”THELMA members who had the chance to meet Maia last September in Paris came away charmed and impressed with her unique perspective on art.”
Often a model in her own photos, Flore chose to exhibit her first series “Sleep Elevations” at THELMA because it is timeless. Flore finds Paris too “busy” for inspiration and instead she her ideas come from the silence, from light, and from her surroundings. She hopes people feel the silence as they view her work at THELMA.
While in Fond du Lac, Maia will give a four-session class, “Digital Photography Immersion Workshop.” During the class, up to 10 students will be able to enrich and refine their portfolio. They will have the opportunity to learn about Flore and her process as she takes the class through her work. Then the class will go on location to shoot as well as work in Photoshop. The cost of the class is $30 (THELMA members receive 20% off) and it runs January 13 through January 16.
“I hope they revisit their childhood dreams,” Flore said. “I am very honored to be invited by THELMA and I hope we will share moments. “
