'Faces' by Isabel Coixet: A photography exhibition in aid of refugees

Money raised by the exhibition will go to the NGO Procativa Open Arms

Everybody is familiar with Isabel Coixet the filmmaker, but fewer know about her talent as a photographer. In the exhibition Faces, you’ll find 52 of her photographs, taken while she was shooting her films. Among them are portraits of the actors and actresses that have worked with her, including Tim Robbins, Juliette Binoche and Rinko Kikuchi, as well as personalities from other fields like Henning Mankell and John Berger.

Although the photos on display are in diverse formats they have all been printed using the Giclée ink-jet printing method, which has given them a particularly striking presence and definition.  Each of the images is accompanied by an explicatory text that also indicates the exact moment at which it was taken. The exhibition is scheduled to open on the 26th of May at the RocioSantaCruz Gallery (Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes 627, Barcelona), and will finish on the 11th of june.

The money raised by the exhibition will go to the NGO Proactiva Open Arms, who are working in the refugee camps on Lesbos. Art and humanitarianism go hand in hand at an exhibition that will help to save human lives.
