ANTOGLYPH at The Print Space opening tonight

Tonight at The Print Space is the opening night of Emmy winning and Bafta-nominated cinematographer and photographer Lukas Strebel’s exhibition Antoglyph. His work has been compared to that of Man Ray, Claude Cahun and Maurice Tabard. This exhibition draws together a collection of his monochrome portraits in surrealist style from the 1970s will be shown.

Born in Switzerland, Strebel built his approach to film through still photography due to lacking availability of film education. Their energy and fluency come as a result of the photographer’s particular relationship to both fine art and cinema.

A lovely anecdote to accompany the show goes as follows…
“During the 1970’s Lukas travelled to Spain to meet and photograph Salvador Dali. He took with him ‘Antoglyph’, the kitchen table which appears regularly in his images. Having been initially refused entrance Lukas gave Dali’s maid a copy of the photograph ‘meus volatus magicus supra Antoglyphum’ and asked her to appeal once more. On the strength of this image he was granted entrance. Cruelly, the day of the appointed shoot Lukas was called back to Switzerland for national service.”
