February 29 – April 7, 2024
Opening : Thursday February 29
6pm – 10pm
in presence of the photographer
Born in Krakow, Poland, Ania Freindorf has been a photographer, filmmaker and artist for 23 years. She began her career in fashion photography with Michal Pasich at Bogdan Axman Studio, assistant of Irving Penn in Krakow, where she first found inspiration for her male nude project “Humanus”. She then moved to Paris to pursue her passion for photojournalism and photographic art. She is represented by various press agencies. A former official photographer and photography teacher at UNESCO, she works with several United Nations agencies. She is also a teacher at the Leica Akademie in Switzerland.
THE “NAKED GLACIERS” PROJECT
In 2017 Ania Freindorf embarked on the “Naked Glaciers” project to bear witness to the perilous state of glaciers and show their fragility, mystery and beauty. The images she exhibits at Mind’s Eye were taken in Europe. Her ambition is to capture images from all seven continents. Among other activities, she works for the United Nations and organizes mountain photography courses for the Leica Akademie. We invite you to immerse yourself in these large-format photographs (some measuring 180 x 120 cm), and to reflect deeply on what is at stake for our planet. Note that the opening will take place on a leap day. We may well wonder what the state of the planet will be on the next leap day, four years from now.
