Ann Ray
"This is my contribution to the world: a license to dream."

BLIND FAITH is a photographic exhibition on the French artist and filmmaker Ann Ray. This artist was born in Brest in Brittany and is a self-taught photographer from the age of 11. After studying alternative photography at Central Saint Martins in London, he worked for designers such as Cartier, Givenchy and McQueen, for magazines such as Elle, Marie Claire and Vogue UK, and for the Times. He has collaborated with the Opéra de Paris and the Metropolitan in New York.

The Venetian exhibition is related to the shots of the last fourteen years and features numerous encounters between Ray and a wide range of art practitioners, from actors and writers to choreographers, dancers, filmmakers, composers such as Willem Dafoe, Alexander McQueen and Michail Baryshnikov among the others. 

The photographer’s brief is to pose with closed eyes, with the aim of communicating a subliminal truth that requires the silencing of sight, as a form of interference. It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul but perhaps there is another channel to decipher the most intimate thoughts, dreams and feelings. This is Ray’s attempt to offer an insight into the abstract, the invisible and the unsaid, for a better understanding of human nature.
