In Doha, the capital of Qatar, Leo Caillard immortalizes the advent of an ultra-modern city. The town, founded in 1850 is in one of the most inhospitable regions in the world and continues to expand whilst the increasing number of buildings, rise higher and higher. In this part of the world, one must overcome the desert and resist it. With 80% expatriates, and an extremely varied cultural mosaic, Qatar has chosen to be forward thinking by offering an increasingly modern and luxurious city. At the foot of towers which have just been built, the foundations of future constructions are already springing up. The visual effect is reminiscent of the site of an archaeological dig. Leo Caillard proposes a very high-definition series of landscapes. By assembling images, the artist proposes panoramic formats. With a ration of 1:3 and more, the assembled photographs cover different angles of view closest to the human angle of vision. Scanning the landscape in this way, the photographer ponders manâs position in the area and his stamp on the landscape.Read more Read less

Passionate as she was about architecture and having studied at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava from 1985 to 1990, it seemed natural to Andrea Ehrenreich, as soon as the Czechoslovakian borders were open, to go to Austria and become an architect there. In 1992 she settled in Vienna, with its impressive architectural heritage, where contemporary creations rub elbows casually with historic monuments. Andrea Ehrenreich didn?t limit herself to her first passion; she also trained at Vienna?s House of Photography in 2005. Today, whether creating environments or taking Polaroid photos, this multi-talented artist gives free rein to her imagination, playing with shapes, lines, colours and compositions. Having taken part in several exhibitions in Austria, she sums up her art this way: ?Life is a compilation of many little moments, some of them banal, but making a beautiful story when put together. Just like my collages.?
