This March, Space Gallery St Barth introduces photography by Isabelle Lindbergh as part of the Spring Exhibition, presenting the Spirit of the Wind series for the first time.
"For this series, my work has focused on my favorite element: Air. Air gives a feeling of elevation and strong energy. The essence of my pictures consists of metaphors responding to the expression of nature through humans but also the connections they have with their environment.” – Isabelle Lindbergh
The endless landscapes that form the backdrop and inspiration of Lindbergh’s photography are totally unspoiled and immediately recognizable as St Barth. Nothing superficial, only nature and human. Lindbergh likes to let the models move in their own way, connecting with the wind and being pulled from one side to the other by the long 16-meter silver sheet, which she uses to harness the power of the wind—making the invisible, visible. Nature is part of the storytelling and its unpredictability plays the co-starring role in these pieces. It is a dance between the elements and the model.
Photographer and pilot, Isabelle Lindbergh was born in Senlis near Paris, France. Granddaughter of American aviator Charles Lindbergh, (the first to cross the North Atlantic non-stop in May 1927), Lindbergh formalized her exploration of the arts by embarking on photography studies at some of the most renowned schools in France and in 2015 she obtained her Masters in photography. Since graduating 10 years ago, Lindbergh’s savoir-faire has been requested in various fields, from fashion, cosmetics, and luxury to music. Her focus has now turned to fine art and having the freedom to explore her full creative vision.
