Exhibition: Enamored
Curator: Adriana Teresa Letorney, FotoVisura
Featuring Artists: Larry Fink, Lauren Greenfield, Henry Horenstein, Edith Maybin, Andrea Bruce, Ruth Kaplan, Paz Errázurriz, Lana Šlezić

Enamored is a visual reflection about the force within women which binds our strength with our passion, intelligence with our body and healing power through belief; the internal energy that makes us courageous and victorious, without retaliation. On the contrary, it is a force, inspired by love, that is revealed in our silence.

This exhibit addresses the innate inner strength in women, one that unites us worldwide; transcending social, cultural and economical barriers. The fiber of the feminine within. The inner spirit. The energy that crucifies and crowns. The radiance that inspires with love when one is enamored.

This photographic exhibition seeks to let this intangible force become tangible, at least for an instant. Maybe this visualization will inspire change.
