Aspecto da exposição em Istambul
“Moments of Smart Luxury", uma iniciativa começada pela Gc na Baselworld 2011, continua a sua digressão à volta do mundo - um evento fotográfico internacional que revela novos talentos.
Nas últimas semanas, a exposição esteve em Istambul, Dubai e Paris. Antes, tinha sido mostrada na Arábia Saudita. Segue agora para Barcelona.
A Gc é uma marca suíça de relógios, cujo lema é "smart luxury".
A global concept, yet with local cultural appeal, that aims at capturing moments of personal luxury of creative personalities from around the world – their “Smart Luxury” as they live out their passions in their work. They are all “rising stars” who embody the characteristics of the Gc brand: ambitious, dynamic, self-assured and proud of their success. “Smart Luxury” is the signature of the Gc brand – itself a “rising star” in the Swiss Made watch world. It is that “feel good” sensation that you get when you know and you feel that you have made the right choice, in your creation, in your profession, in your life.
The creative personalities are photographed in their act of creation by the renowned Brazilian-born photographer Pino Gomes, famous for his sensitive eye which enables him to capture the very essence and soul of the people in front of his camera. The perfect artist for Gc to bring to life ‘Moments of Smart Luxury’.
