Philip Dunn’s new photography Exhibition ‘Hidden La Mola’ is now open in the amazing venue of the Fortress of La Mola in Menorca, Spain.
The exhibition will run until the end of October before moving to other venues in Menorca.
If you have read my last post you will know that Norene is unwell. This has meant that I have been unable to be in Menorca to set up the exhibition in this extraordinary venue. All the hard work has been done by Joana Catala, the Director of La Mola.
Joana has made a fantastic job – arranging the sets of images with imagination and flare. I cannot thank her enough. Joana has sent me these photographs of the exhibition on its first day.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Hotel S’Algar – the lovely hotel where we base our Photography Holidays every year in Menorca. Thanks are due to our good friend Carlos Sintes, Managing Director of S’Algar Hotels for all the support and backing he has given in getting this exhibition up and running.
La Mola is at the top of the list of favourite locations for all the photographers who come on my Photography Holidays in Menorca. It is a truly amazing location for photography, which so much to offer.
The images, which have been gathered over a period of a couple of years, show many of the places that are generally hidden from the public. Sometimes because the derelict buildings in which they were taken are unsafe (no I did not wear a hard hat, but I did tread very carefully in some of the most rickety buildings).
One of the aims of the exhibition is to highlight the need for sensitive renovation of these wonderful places, but also to open the eyes of those who do not immediately recognise the visual wonder of places that have been left undisturbed for many years. Decay and dereliction can be very beautiful. Time is a wonderfully creative force if allowed to work its magic.
Once again my sincere thanks to Joana and Carlos for their help and commitment – hopefully everyone who goes along to the exhibition, including the photographers who come on the Photography Holiday will enjoy the exhibition as much as I enjoyed capturing the photographs
