Naomi Kamat, originally born in Bath, UK, has lived most of her life on the West Coast of Ireland. Her practice, informed by her studies in both Fine Art and Photography, embraces traditional photography methods such as 35mm, medium format and large format photography, in favour of their tactile nature.
Her exhibition That’s How The Light Gets In, which is being shown at Fellini’s Tearoom as part of Cork Photo 2015, is a body of work that she began in 2014. In her own words “The work made itself. Each image was born out of a state of mind and feeling.”
This series of images explores the embodiment of both the physical and spiritual human experience. It offers each viewer an intimate but open interaction with the work.
The exhibition space, Fellini’s, was specifically chosen for it’s welcoming and peaceful environment and visitors are encouraged to sit and enjoy the space and the work with a cup of tea and a piece of Patricia’s delicious cake (optional)! The exhibition runs for the full month of July and is open daily, Monday to Saturday 10am-6pm and Sundays 11am-6pm.
