Andrei Farcasanu
Andrei Farcasanu is a Romanian photographer living and working in Barcelona, Spain. He works with black and white analog photography, and hand made prints in a small sizes. His work focuses on intimate pictorial photography used as a way to investigate the subtle details of everyday life. Through his minimalist photography, the reduced size of his works and the fact that Farcasanu transforms his images to a level of unique and singular objects, the observer has to come closer to study the details in order to understand his message; he thus slows down the rhythm of modern life.

Farcasanu graduated from the National University of Arts Bucharest and the Academy of Fine Arts, where he majored in painting (2003). He also holds a Master degree in Photography (2005) and a PhD in photography with the thesis Social Photography (2013). For this new living room exhibition The Gallery Club has selected Andrei’s latest work Abyss, available in a portfolio of 3 prints or individual prints.

Bert Teunissen
Since the mid 1990’s Bert Teunissen is ‘on the road’, photographing the landscape. Always in the same way: shot from behind the steering wheel while driving, using an Olympus Pen, among other cameras, the legendary half frame camera from the 60s and 70s.

All his photographs are printed on outdated photographic paper-stock, creating different flares in colors and contrasts, which make every print unique and impossible to create again. For Bert Teunissen this irreversible process is part of his search to capture the fluid state of mind while traveling for his project of more than two decades, Domestic Landscapes, of people posing in their domestic spaces. He views his work as both an anthropological study and a study of national character.

Mini portfolio: Robert Doisneau Selected Works – by Benrido Collotype Atelier
During The Living Room #2 exhibition, The Gallery Club presents the latest mini portfolio by Benrido Collotype Atelier from the famous French photographer Robert Doisneau. Born in Gentilly, Paris in 1922, Robert Doisneau is one of France’s most noted photographers. During his long career, his poetic approach to street photography recorded French everyday life in often playful and surreal images. Always charmed by his subjects, he enjoyed finding amusing juxtapositions or oddities of human nature. He photographed a vast span of people and events, often juxtaposing conformist and maverick elements in images marked by an exquisite sense of humor, by anti-establishment values, and, above all, by his deeply felt humanism.
