” A NOMAD EYE”
Allen Myers is a unique and talented photographer, film maker, writer and humanitarian. On January 15th, 2006, he made a life changing decision to change something in the world. With a backpack of clothes, a camera and a journal he headed to Turino Italy which was the first of many destinations. The artistry and vision of his work takes shape as he weaves himself into the communities in which he discovers.
He works with, lives with and feels with the peoples he later captures on film and in stories. Nomadsight is a temporary street art instalment of world photography, it moves from city to city around the world and in this manner grows in its collection.
Each exhibit and arrival into a new place is also filmed, with the final film being edited to music from a local musician. The film serves as a digital diary of that time and place. This project reminds us of some of the fundamental pieces we all share in across culture, country and religion.
This show has received several awards had been selected on 2014 San Francisco Pictoclick Festival and with an honorable mentions at Lucie Awards the same year.
