Spanish artist Pere Ibañez releases new photography book, The Leftlovers Date: March 18, 2012

Pere Ibañez will release his new series on domestic violence through his recently published book, The Leftlovers. The book will be available April 10 in print through major retailers, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc., and the digital ebook version may be found on Apple’s iBookstore. Pieces from this new series have already been featured in exhibitions in Asia, Europe, and the US. Upcoming solo exhibitions will be held in April in Madrid and June in China, the last in collaboration with NGO Peace for Humanity to raise donation funds for victims of domestic violence. An international clutch of artists and models also contributed to the production of the series. The central theme of The Leftlovers is the dark side of love: heartbreak, abuse, dependence, and obsession. Anyone, regardless of gender or orientation, can be either victim or aggressor. The collection explores both specific social events and universal tales of tragedy. The book is meant to loosely narrate a story of abuse developing within intimate relationships, a descent into hopelessness, and then finally breaking the chains that bind the subjects to the devastating realities they have been living in and even previously blind to. While the images themselves are extreme and explicit, the ultimate message is to give hope to the abused and empower them to fight for their freedom and self-respect. This ending is not to be taken as Hollywood optimism but rather a realistic outcome — it is possible to survive and start a new life free of violence. Originally from Barcelona, Spain, Pere Ibañez majored in film making and screenwriting. In February 2010, just two months after releasing his first 3 photographs, Ibañez received his first award in New York and eventually topped the sales charts. His first photographic collection, EneME, has been released in 22 countries to date. He currently lives in Beijing, China, where he takes most of his photographs.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
