Kunst im Aurelio

Das Aurelio fördert die Kunst. Nicht nur das hochkarätige Festival Lege Artis macht jährlich Station in Lech, auch die Wände des Aurelio werden von wechselnden Ausstellungen geziert. Um ein Stück vom Urlaub mit nach Hause zu nehmen, können die Kunstwerke auch vor Ort käuflich erworben werden.

Tim Hall

For many years,  the permanent exhibition of the London-based photographer Tim Hall is an important part of Aurelios flair. His landscape photographs of the Arlberg region impress from the first moment.

Since the opening of the Hotel Aurelio in December 2008, photographs of Tim Hall are exhibited in color and black and white at the hotel premises. They show mainly landscapes of Lech and mountain ranges in summer as well as the winter bustle on the ski slopes of the Alps. A total of 450 photographs of the artist can be found in all 19 rooms and suites and the hotel bar Licca Lounge.

Each summer, the artist himself held in small groups workshops for amateur photographers in Lech. Reservations can be made via the email address office@aureliolech.com.

 Princess Sophie von Hanau,

born into an Austrian / German family, is a citizen of the world, fluent in four languages. She went to school in Spain, and visited family in the U.S several times a year. Whilst in pursuit of her BA in psychology, she attended the University of Miami, Webster University Vienna, C.I.S in Madrid and graduated at London’s Regent college in 2004. Believing that psychology is the window into the world and into human behavior, she began to merge this knowledge with her passion for photography, capturing the very moment that she wished to analyze.

Sophie then went on to another degree, and studied photography at the ‘School of Black and White Photography’ in London. Since a young age Sophie has had the opportunity to travel the world, her passion taking her to some of the most remote places around the globe. Quickly but to no surprise, she held her first photography exhibition at London’s renowned fashion store ‘Fendi’ on Sloane Street in 2006.

Sophie very much discovered her passion for photography through her psychology. In one of her ‘Abnormal Psychology‘ classes she was required to give a presentation, but having a serious fear of public speaking she decided to document her project on mental illness with images. “With a camera I found a voice!” she says. She spent 3 months strongly ineracting with homeless people in Miami, and New York, of which many suffer serious mental illnesses. The situations she found herself in were often far from safe. The response to her photography was astounding, and her project was exhibited at the University of Miami Arts Centre. Having grown up with her mother who is an interior designer, It was not long before this influence inspired her to merge decorative photography with documentary photography. Creating the over sized, modern and sometimes slightly abstract work she does today.

Her work is now being sold exclusively at several interior de- sign showrooms across the world, such as B&B Italia, Jalan in Miami’s design district, Nest in Bahrain, and Noujoum in Marbella Spain. Her work is also represented at various galleries. Though her passion lies in documentary/artistic photography, she spent 3 years working in fashion photography. Assisting Nick Haddow on a full time basis, with all of his campaigns. Her travels take her to Tanzania, Africa, for long periods of time, where the Sophie von Hanau Foundation funds several ongoing projects. www.svhf.com

“I go where my heart sends me, and I help where I can” She donates a generous amount of the proceeds from her sales to these projects. Knowing that this will help better the lives of those children and their families which she has worked with, come to love and wants to help.
