recom ART: high quality ditone exhibition prints for the 'Face/project' by Tina Berning & Michelangelo Di Battista at Camera Work, Berlin

What began as an artistic collaboration between photographer Michelangelo Di Battista and illustrator Tina Berning (GoSee reported) a few years ago, has now been consequently continued and the fruitful results are now on show in the ‘FACE/project’ solo show at Camera Work.

RECOM ART first produced Michelangelo di Battista's female portraits as high quality ditone prints, in turn, Tina Berning then added techniques such as weaving, cutting and sewing, as well as comments and illustrations. The exhibition presents over 30 unique pieces.

Tina Berning and Michelangelo Di Battista’s collaboration breaks new ground in fashion photography, illustration and painting.

The two first met whilst working on a beauty shoot for VOGUE ITALIA in summer 2007. They soon realise the great potential of the creative collaboration. During the shoot, they recognised they were entering an area, which had previously been restrictive: they ignored all the manipulative possibilities of the computer, instead they anachronistically united their disciplines of photography and illustration in an analogue way.

The exhibition is open until 30 October at the CAMERA WORK Gallery.
