“My work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, lifestyle imagery, or just the perfect light”, states the now Seine-Saint-based artist. And in her most recent exhibition, Stahl still captures the present, the real, the now. Through her most recent series, she’s presenting “My adopted suburb, the one where I live and raise my children, the one which, according to the media, is always on the border of civil war”. The photographs were taken in Seine-Saint and modelled by “those who really live there, not the stereotypes they tell you of, the ones that are my kings”.
Through this series of stunning photographs, she wants to leave a trace and encapsulate the present of the place. We live in a world which is developing quicker than we can keep up with and Stahl wants to be able to show her children later in life where they grew up, the people that surrounded them and what it was really like in that time – describing her works as “a strong trace with a soft regard”. The photographs are exhibited beautifully inside a rustic open space building. This location cleverly compliments the authenticity of Stahl’s collection. Portraits, landscapes, buildings and close up cars, the series really allows you to get a feel of the place and those that live in it. Beautifully curated from start to finish, Stahl’s exhibition is a must see so don’t miss your chance to check it out.
