In an industrial eclectic venue, photographer Ibrahim Bandu hosted his debut exhibit, the wandering EYE. His photos captured his moments of wanderlusting in Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and domestically in South Beach.
The swanky intimate evening was tucked away at L2 in Georgetown. The event was pleasant on the eyes from the moment you walked in the door; from the photos, to the live body painting by Ed the Artist, the delicious food options, and the tunes delivered by local celebrity DJ and radio personality, EZ Street. The exhibit was perfectly staged to host small conversations surrounding the work, with perfect lighting for art lovers and creative alike.
The exhibit featured photos taken from a simple, yet passionate eye. The beauty captured was easily transcended from black and white, to vibrant in the moment colors. Some photos made effortless statements, pushing you to appreciate your quality of life; while others made you want to jump on the first thing smoking to see the vivacious color and texture captured through Ibrahim’s lens. The simple details of each photograph cannot be summed up into words that will give them justice. It is something you have to physically see to understand.
Be sure to follow Ibrahim’s work, but more importantly, support the local artist by purchasing his work through his website. The photography options come in prints of all sizes and custom coffee table books that feature photographs that are not available for purchase elsewhere.
Overall, the event captured a combination of creativity and senses: looking, listening, smelling, touching, tasting and dancing. If you’d like to see more from Ibrahim, keep up with him via social media:
