In early March KAVA (Kinvara Area Visual Arts) will host an exhibition of portraits by photographer Markus Voetter. ‘Faces & Crafts of Kinvara’ is composed of striking images of local Kinvara craftspeople at work. “As a photographer” says Markus, “I naturally feel drawn to documenting particularly intriguing facets of life, this has led me to this ongoing photographic project.” Markus wants to draw attention to some of the traditional professions to be found in Kinvara, to highlight the skill involved in them, and to inspire new generations to continue these crafts. “Also, because they are integral to the ongoing success of our town I feel it is important to record and preserve the work of these artisans” Markus is originally from East Germany and has made his home in Kinvara.
