As Platinum Love expands into new territories we are proud to present our new annual photography project, Beyond Love, a journey across the Mediterranean. Beyond Love is a new platform for story telling, celebrating the art of photography through the eyes of the new.

A contemporary photography collection featuring the work of twenty photographers from Malta and overseas, Beyond Love seeks to expose the emotional duality of human relationships and their aftermath. The exhibition is subdivided into two themes. The first, Devotion will capture intimacy in its various forms including those challenging stereotypes and the perceived status quo. Cruel World on the other hand , as the heading suggests, presents the backwash of the former: desolation, remnants of love and self reflection.

Artists taking part: Antony Bou, Alessandro Furchino, Andy Massaccesi, Alexandra Pace, Alba Yruela, Clement Louis, Eric Lawton, Jon Banthorpe, Justin Leveritt, Julian Vassallo, Luca Grottoli, Lia Sáile, Magnus Åström, Matt Lambert, Quentin De Briey, Oliver Clément, Rebekah Campbell, Stephanie Sant, Tim Barber, Winter Vandenbrink.

Beyond Love, Desolation & Devotion will be held at St James Cavalier, Centre for Creativity, Valletta Malta from the 8th to the 31st of May 2015. The event is supported by Platinum Love and the Malta Arts Fund hosted by Bottega Gold. Desolation & Devotion is curated by our Editor-at-large, Fabrizio Mifsud Soler, artistic direction by Matthew Attard Navarro.
