‘Doi Mae Salong’

Women and children seen through global lense

Husband and wife photo exhibit in Port Alberni celebrates girls and women.

Husband and wife photographers Ati and Orsi Gereb have combined their love of photography and travelling to mount the exhibit “Women and Children From Around the World” at the Rollin Art Centre this month.

“I have been using photography as a note-taking tool and substitute for journal writing for some time,” Ati Gereb writes.

In 2009 he embarked on a journey around the world, crossing 25 countries in just under a year. It was while mounting an exhibit of his work in his home country of Transylvania-Romania that he met Orsi.

Initially, Orsi was attracted by the abundance of colours Ati presented in his work. Then she got to know the artist himself.

Orsi has coupled photography with her formal training in topography, land surveying and urban planning. She is passionate for nature and flower arrangements, and says dressing up the frames for the photo exhibit came naturally.

The Gerebs were married in May 2012 and have a son together.

Women and Children From Around the World runs until April 10.

An artists’ reception is planned for this Saturday, March 16 from 1-3 p.m., when the public will have the chance to meet Ati and Orsi Gereb and ask about their photographs and their travels.

The Rollin Art Centre is located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Argyle Street. Admission is by donation.
