The emotions that lie beneath the photographed face

We all know that Photoshop can be used to alter photographs, to make people look thinner and the rub out those wrinkles, but visual effects can also be used to take photography to another artistic level. This level has been met by photographer Pavlina Bargili who will show her work as of Tuesday in the exhibition Anima in Limassol.

Anima will exclusively present photographs of digital visual effects to show that language and words often do not hit the mark, as they can “neither express nor describe the love, the loss, the tragedy or joy felt deep inside the human soul,” according to organisers.

While working with digital photography, the art of capturing faces is an act of profound intuition, according to the photographer.

“I create for all those things that deeply matter to me. I create to challenge this intuition; a type of work that gives me access to a depth of emotions, to all the complex feelings lying beneath those faces. Their soul – anima,” Bargili said.

Bargili, from Famagusta, studied jewellery design in Austria and is the owner of the jewellery store in Atlantica Miramare Hotel in Limassol. This is her first exhibition.

The exhibition, which will be inaugurated by scenographer Andy Bargilly, will remain open until December 4.
