UPCOMING EVENTS IN NOTTING HILL
27th June – 31st July 2014
C99 Art Project, Gallery, 99 Chamberlayne Road, NW10 3ND
Photographer Aaron Baghetti presents a selection of his images at the C99 Art Project Gallery this summer, in an exhibition titled Tilt Up. The exhibition is inspired by a collective feeling of global alienation – throughout the world, people are absorbed in their own microcosm and are distance from each other and that which surrounds them. The images in the exhibition aim to inspire people to look outside of their normal visual range, and to raise their gaze towards futuristic perspectives, real and concrete.
Aaron Baghetti was born in Milan, son of Giancarlo Baghetti – a journalist and photographer and former Formula 1 driver, who is the only rookie to have won his first F1 race. His father’s influence inspired Aaron to become a professional photographer at the age of only 16; since then, he’s pursued a successful career working within the commercial sector, capturing everything from cars to music, fashion and design.
Aaron’s first exhibition Alza lo Squardo was held in Milan last year. In May 2014, he had three works featured at the London Photo Festival. He has also shown a motion photograph at The Saatchi Gallery together with other shortlisted works from Google Art Project ‘Google+’ and The Saatchi Gallery Prize.
The C99 Art Project represents a number of artists who exhibit in public and private collections in the UK and around the world.
