Valentine Willie Fine Art is presenting the latest solo show by renowned photographer Eiffel Chong entitled Before the World Fell to Pieces. As gloomy as it may sound, this melancholic interpretation of his views of Eiffels world and its surroundings will start from September 15 and goes on until October 6 2012.
The show is curated by Eva McGovern which encompasses the likes of the prediction of the Mayan calendar of the end of the world in late 2012. Eiffels work has often been seen as thought provoking and usually carries a serious tone to them. His techniques are usually promoted through the cameras and lenses that are usually unique to his own style and signature.
Eiffel will be bringing in his works from 2 major series which are A Matter of Life of Death and A Fragile Thing Called Man where there will be a collection of his landscape photos that are captured through his trademarks shots.
Where this is concerned, Before the World Fell to Pieces offers a poetic interpretation of his take on the human race which is deemed to be deteriorating in many ways. In A Matter of Life And Death, the works have been his ongoing work since 2009 where he pulls together the integration of space and place that promotes the failing and collapsing states of history and politics.
On the other hand, Eiffel uses a Hasselblad camera to create a tilt-shift image in his A Fragile Thing Called Man which provides a birds eye view or a giant viewpoint of a certain landscape thereby creating the illusion of miniature structures of real life buildings and environments. This is an interesting exhibition that will surely invoke the deep thoughts of the viewer through a unique media not often done so successfully by many artists of today.
