Alma Rosaz Publishes Debut Photobook ‘A Dance With The Clouds’
Fashion and music photographer Alma Rosaz, releases her debut photobook, ‘A Dance With The Clouds’, offering a kitsch and colourful journey into Alma Rosaz’ dazzling photography world. Her practice explores the artistic and quirky sides of photography, focusing on colourful and distorted portraits touching on cultures, gender, performance and identity.
This book acts as an exhibition of selected works from 2020 to 2022 chosen by the artist exploring four major themes present in Rosaz’ practice. It will first delve into the young photographer’s worlds of escapism, before going to her experimentation with self-portraiture, passing by the close relationship of photography with paintings, before reviewing her work on music photography.
Speaking on the book, Alma shares “In June 2022, I was approached by Snap Collective Publishing to publish a book about my photography work. The idea of making a book was all new to me and I wasn’t sure how to approach it. After thinking about it and doing some research, I decided “okay let’s do it!”. I gathered work, both personal and commissioned, which I wanted to unite in one body of work. The work presented in this book starts in early 2020, during lockdown, which is when I started developing a new photographic style involving distortions, poppy colours and collages, which was my way of escaping the situation. Through this book I aim at embarking readers into a journey into my own creative and imaginary world. I hope you enjoy the ride!”
Alma has lived in many countries such as Nigeria, Norway and Indonesia, and is the daughter of parents with strong artistic visions, which participated in educating her eyes for all sorts of arts, colours and cultures. Her fascination for staging and storytelling is translated by the use of props, collages and the habit of changing her subjects into characters uniquely her own.
