This evening I went to the opening of the 2009 Ferdynand Zweig Exhibition Private View. It was at a new little gallery on the main street in Penryn. ’Open Space Galleries’. A good space.
Sam Hofman graduated from Falmouth with a BA in Photography last year. He is now living and working in London. In this show he exhibited six prints from his series Aliens Order. The project is based on a personal exploration of his Polish heritage. I find the images present a contemplative view. Some really strong portraits held together with gentle gestures of depopulated space. Like when you have to be alone to take in your surroundings.
