Alix Carmichele - "A Bad Name"
A Bad Name
A Bad Name
W: 410mm x H: 510mm
This work is unframed
Alix Carmichele returned to South Africa after studying photography in London and began the long process of establishing herself in this field, polishing & refining her technique by learning all the tricks of the trade from various experienced professionals. Extensive travel throughout Africa and many other exotic locations in the world has further inspired and imbued her work with a unique quality. With a seemingly effortless gift for composition, she manages to entice the viewer into a direct experience with her subject matter. Much of her work is created digitally and her long experience with practical darkroom theory is applied to enhance this new media. She also makes use of square format manual cameras. For the past nine years, Carmichele has been engaged on a deeply personal level with the South African law courts after a brutal and unnecessary assault. On the 14 0f November 2003 the Cape High Court ruled in her favour. Her efforts have brought about significant changes in the way the justice system is managed in this country, and the new laws in place will have a positive impact on the lives of any future innocent victims of similar crimes. Carmichele is in the process of writing a coffee table type book on her story which will include words and images to depict her life during this battle.
Seven solo exhibitions and four group shows since 1991 in Johannesburg and Knysna.
