“One of the strongest images was the Taj Mahal (1992). The building, shot from a distance and mirrored in the long reflecting pool before it, is pale and ghostly, seeming to hover like a mirage against a moody burnt orange sky. Only after trying to make sense of the pictorial space does it become clear that Monet actually turned the picture upside down, further playing with the idea of negative and positive. He seems drawn to the dual nature of India, finding the spiritual and carnal at its roots”. (Hilarie M. Sheets)

The series Domvs Adriani was captured in 2004 at Hadrian’s Villa, Tivoli, Italy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has inspired many artists including Italian master engraver Giovanni Battista Piranesi.

Facts & Trivia

Akim Ranked on the list of most popular Photographer. Also ranked in the elit list of famous celebrity born in United States. Akim Monet celebrates birthday on February 25 of every year.

He used photography as a way of processing what he was feeling. Having accumulated a trove of images, he found looking at the negative strips more akin to his actual experience of the places and became obsessed with the instant when the shutter clicks open and the emulsion on the celluloid reacts to the sudden onslaught of light; with the magic that occurs at that micro-moment around 1/100th of a second when light hits the negative. The tiny images on the negative strips seemed to burn: stone was transformed into molten lava and shadow became light.

On that day I was invited to commune with the work of the sculptor who for me incarnates the notion of engagement – in the past, but also in the future – in life and in the yonder, in brief the engagement in the study of the human condition″. Akim Monet

Liz Christensen, Curator at the Deutsche Bank Fine Art Program said about his work: “Fascinated by the moment captured by the opening and closing of the shutter – creating what the artist calls the “burn” of the image – Monet’s photographs conjure a mystery and beauty akin to alchemy.”

The idea with “Exotic Flowers”, as Monet explains, was to go back to square one, and just as a painter learns the rudiments of making still lifes and portraits, so too would he return to the basics. Again dichotomy plays a powerful role in Monet’s gorgeous pictures taken in Bali of wild growth not seen on this side of the equator as well as of transvestites negating their gender in New York’s yearly Wigstock festival. Conceptually, the two subjects hold together both in their fragility and lavish statement, and the same colors echo in each -the deep purple of the sunflower in one drag queen’s hair, for instance, is laced throughout the tropical plants. The hothouse effect of Monet’s pictures speaks to a moment when the world feels on the verge of boiling over, where the same Balinese paradise that he photographed was subsequently bombed by terrorists. Part of the beauty and intensity of these photographs has to do with the convergence of opposites, of past and present. They stand sublimely poised in the space between.
