“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
From this quote of the great photographer Ansel Adams, the creator and artistic director Akim Alonzo conceives, imagines it, especially dreams about the ”Itakos Art Gallery”. The name evokes not randomly Ithaca, the island of Odysseus as a metaphor and symbolic significance of the Trip, one of the inner journey metaphor that runs through the fantasy, the dream, the search for beauty and emotion, not that it is so important the Goal, but rather the road that runs to get it. And the Illusion of Secondlife Virtual World, according to Akim, perfectly suited to represent this evocative path, and through the Visual Art shapes our imagination into emotional Pixels.
