In the exhibition GENTRIFIED SUMMER, I've embraced Adobe AI's new Artificial Intelligence to enhance the portraits I captured, enjoying the freedom to re-imagine and execute my creative ideas without the burden of complexities. AI has become a valuable tool, allowing me to infuse new life and depth into the portraits while unleashing my artistic vision with ease. The result is a captivating showcase that celebrates the power of technology in the realm of artistry.
In this body of photographs, I delve into the captivating realm of urban landscapes, elevating them to a surreal dimension through the transformative power of AI technology. Through my artistic exploration, I seek to blur the lines between reality and imagination, inviting viewers to experience the urban environments, often those in the midst of gentrification, in an entirely new light. By harnessing the capabilities of AI, I aim to evoke emotions and provoke contemplation about the ever-evolving urban landscape and the potential of technology in shaping our perception of the world.
