Gaia by Jaume Llorens



Friday, 1 December 2023 to Sunday, 31 December 2023

All About Photo is pleased to present ‘GAIA’ by Jaume Llorens

Part of the exclusive online showroom developed by All About Photo, this exhibition is on view for the month of December 2023 and includes twenty photographs from the series ‘GAIA’

This ongoing series takes its name from a hypothesis by James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis that describes Earth as a single superorganism in which living beings and the rest of the planet establish a self-regulating equilibrium that ensures the survival of the whole.

The series consists of diptychs created by juxtaposing two photographs of natural elements found in my local environment. These elements generate a third image that combines the two photographs into a harmonious whole, which differs from the simple sum of its parts as described by Ralph Gibson in his concept of the “Overtone.” New and balanced realities can be created from this simple juxtaposition.

Gaia aims to reflect on the need to re-establish our connection with nature that has been neglected for too long, and to feel like a responsible part of this marvellous system once again to ensure the survival of our planet.
