Photographing the work of artist and sculptor Raâk
A chance encounter with Raâk during her successful exhibition of sculptures at Studio Galerie B&B led to a series of photographs of the remaining pieces in her collection. Raâk works with different types of media, including terra cotta, wood and stone. Working in a controlled studio environment, we selected a black background to bring out the terra cotta clay and ochre pigments that she adds when firing them. Having gotten close to her work while photographing it, I can attest to the spiritual and spontaneous quality that it exudes and which so many admirers find enticing.
