Past Exhibition: AU FEU ! by FRED GOUDON. PROLONGED.
The photographic exhibition "Au Feu!" proposed by Wynwood Art Lab will warm up the winter days of the Axel Hotel in Barcelona.
French photographer Fred Goudon, author of the work, is known for his photographs of sculptural bodies of athletes, rugby players and firefighters.
Barcelona, December 2018 - Wynwood Art Lab and Axel Hotel Barcelona promise a show that will raise the temperature during the cold winter days of Barcelona. The exhibition "Fire!" by famous French photographer Fred Goudon is a panegyric of the fire brigade in general and that of French firefighters in particular.
Accustomed to represent athletes and athletes with the technique of black and white photography, the photographer combines a classic and minimalist style to enhance even more the muscles of the protagonists represented, naked or half-naked. In addition to improving the brightness, the portraits perfectly capture the energy and dynamics of certain poses in real movement, such as firefighters who play with water, practice a sport or exercise.
The series of annual calendars "Les Dievx du Stade" (The Gods of the Stadium) and "Pompiers de France" (Firemen of France) bear the signature of Fred Goudon.
This latest collaboration between Wynwood Art Lab and the Axel Hotel Barcelona is a perfect match for the public staying in Axel Hotels.
