Part of a series created in Cuba, Claudia Legge's Empty Pool was most recently exhibited in the VIA Art Prize.
This photograph perfectly transcends the real and the perceived surreal. “Using careful composition and an eye for colour, Claudia seeks for her images to border on abstraction but maintain her highly distinctive style. The Cuban series presents a surreal yet vivid picture of the world from a truly original perspective”.
