Please join us for the Private View of Frank Thiel's exhiition Quinceañeras at Blain|Southern Berlin. For his latest body of work, artist Frank Thiel returns to portrait photography for the first time in over 20 years. Quinceañeras examines the Cuban tradition of lavish coming-of-age celebrations around a girl’s 15th birthday. Known for intensively researched projects that document temporary states and places in transformation, Thiel uses the quince tradition as a metaphor for the shifting social and economic climate of Havana - creating a portrait of a generation of young women alongside that of the city itself.
