Space Gallery St Barth is delighted to present new gallery artist, Isabelle Lindbergh and present the Spirit of the Wind series.
"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 though humans but also the connections they have with their environment. I aim to tell a unique story with each piece, and invite the viewer to adopt new perspectives when contemplating a piece. Each piece starts with the location and feeling the energy of the place, then the connection that the model feels and expresses in situ."
The endless landscapes that form the backdrop and inspiration are totally sauvage and immediately recognisable 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 metre silver sheet, which she uses to harness the power of the wind - making the invisible, visible. Nature is part of the storytelling and its unpre- dictability plays the co-starring role in these pieces. It is a dance between the elements and the model. These innocent moments are always organic and free-spirited.

"In my work, we feel mobility and freedom. The pieces focus on my ability to capture the place and the model in movement. It’s important for me to find people that are not just models. They also have a story, something to tell us. For me photography goes beyond the limits of concepts and imaginations, and my photography aims to express what we feel but cannot see."
From the photoshoot through to the production of the print, every step is important. The printing process used is Piezography ,which is the high- est-standard in black and white printing. It is the only system capable of printing tens of thousands of gray levels that capture the depth and nuance of the image. This is produced from the increased load of high quality carbon pigment being printed combined with up to seven shades of carbon ink.
