Portals of Valletta – Exclusive Monochrome Prints (1/1)


Portals of Valletta presents a representative selection of doors and portals within their urban and social context, ranging from the monumental portals of Baroque churches and palaces, to the exquisitely-crafted doorways of townhouses and apartment blocks to the mundane doors of the most humble dwellings in the city’s poorer neighbourhoods, as exemplified in the graffiti-splattered and rust-ridden metal doors of some kerrejja at the lower-end of the city. The door becomes an architectural metaphor for social and community diversity.

The 30 individual architectural fine art monochrome prints by internationally awarded artist and photographer, Dr Charles Paul Azzopardi, are an exploration and study of symmetry, symphony, patterns and reflections, looking at spaces we all encounter in everyday life, doors, always taken for granted, with barely a nod of indebtedness as we fleet past them. Charles has taken his background in architectural photography to showcase Valletta in its beauty, and these images are an ode to Malta’s capital.


Each print is a single limited edition artist proof, 1/1, signed verso by the artist.
