ART'NA is a fruitful collaboration of 25 talented local and foreign photographers working in Malta. Their bond is this land that is Malta, but within the 'Malta parameter', their subject matter is incredibly diverse.
We see this island of ours through the critical eyes of local photographers intent on finding new perspectives on what has been there since time immemorial and yes, they have certainly delivered. There are also those images captured by newcomers to Malta that reward the viewer with an unexpected take on age-old themes.
Malta is presented as an island at odds with itself - one that nestles comfortably into its past with its terraced fields, lonely megalithic structures, grid patterned cities and natural rock formations, against one that forges ahead with the thrumming of construction, edgy architecture and larger-than-life shipping. Here the present is frozen, transforming ordinary views into visionary perspectives.
