Madinat Jumeirah presents Portraits of a Soul

Madinat Jumeirah presents Portraits of a Soul

Dubai, 12 February 2014: Madinat Jumeirah is proud to announce world-renowned face reader Eric Standop will revisit Talise Spa in March 2014 with photographer Richard Pilnick to present Portraits of a Soul.

Following the success of his recent stint at the award-winning Talise Spa earlier this year, Eric will return to present the unique experience, Portraits of a Soul with photographer Richard Pilnick. The duo will combine the art of face reading, poetry and traditional photography.

Using a one hundred-year-old wooden camera for an authentic effect, a photo shoot is carried out by Richard while Eric makes some face reading observations. The final result is an insight into the soul, through a powerful framed image alongside beautiful poetry.

The tropical landscape and tranquil surroundings, combined with the unique Arabian architecture of Madinat Jumeirah create the perfect outdoor studio environment for Portraits of a Soul’s Dubai debut.

During his March visit, Eric will also present a Face Reading Workshop on Saturday 15 March 2014. Taking place at Talise Spa from 10am and 4pm, priced AED950 inclusive of lunch, the workshop will provide the basic tools for face reading.

The seminar includes theory and practical training with the aid of photographs and drawings to provide an uncomplicated understanding of how to use face reading for personal and professional reasons.
