591 Exhibition - Owen O'Meara


I am glad to present Owen O'Meara and his photography. We have had some exchange of emails planning the vernissage and it has been a pleasure to get to know Owen a bit more. I had to smile when he sent me a couple of photos saying; "
I know you are not a big fan of nudes but I thought these two might be usable." Well, my answer to Owen was - Of course I like nudes, like Bill Brandt, Irving Penn or... Owen O'Meara interpretates this classic subject. Enough said.

Owen has selected music, snacks and drinks for the vernissage "
I think a Mozart piano Sonata and some black caviar on toast points with a light Pinot Grigio would work nicely" Sounds like a good choice to me. Once more, thanks for being here Mr O'Meara.
