‘I was born in Zimbabwe, Africa – Gavin Worth wrote in his website – in 1981 and grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I graduated with a degree in Acting, and after college, worked as an actor and musician for the Santa Fe Shakespeare Festival, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, and the California Shakespeare Theater. I have had a lifelong passion for drawing, painting, and sculpture since I first saw Michelangelo’s “Head of Leda” in a book in the library. I am self taught.

I’ve been very lucky to have a wide variety of experiences. I was commissioned by Lexus to make a series of sculptures celebrating their emergence into Brazil. I designed and created custom pieces for Tiffany & Co for their Valentine’s Day window displays globally. My work in sculpture and education led me to be a finalist for the 2014 TED Fellowship. Ralph Lauren asked me to brainstorm modern, engaging, and minimal sculptural jewelry displays for their stores. I have created and installed large-scale public sculptures all over the world. My work has been shown and collected internationally.

I recently lived in Cairo, Egypt for three years and saw three Presidents come and go. I currently live and work in Lausanne, Switzerland.’

Martin Parr: The Last Workshop

3525069313_22cbf457c0_z

Before Martin Parr retired from leading his popular workshops, he held a final session last summer at the Magnum Print Room in London. Over one weekend, Martin worked with fifteen participants, critiquing and developing their respective bodies of work, their creative practices and their artistic identities. But it was more than just your average educational workshop, as Martin opened up his studio to the group, explaining exactly how he works and revealing many of his trial-tested tricks of the trade.
Lucky for Martin Parr fans, or really anyone looking to learn from one of the world’s premiere photographers, the entire experience was taped and is being made available exclusively on Vimeo. The weekend workshop, cut down to just under two hours, is pure Martin Parr — a uniquely edifying experience from the visual master of the ridiculous, the mundane and the ridiculously mundane.

Invisible City focuses on similarities between city and web, the places where human interactions happen. In the information technology era, urban infrastructures and server answer to the same need to communicate and exchange aspects of contemporary life. We spend in our city the same amount of time we spend on the internet. Cutting distance between speakers, instant communication and online communities make the web the perfect copy of our cities. Server and urban intrastructures, elements usually perceived as distant are here coupled together linked with common viasual elements. This photographic similitude allude to a real and substantial parallelism. Invisible City does not aim at a final and defined theory. If it’s true that photographs come to life through the perception of the observer, here we have all the compulsory elements to consider the way how communication via internet has completely changed our way of living.
