Opening reception Saturday 8 April 2017, 12 — 5 pm
Duration of the exhibition: 08.04.2017 — 29.04.2017
The group exhibition Encounters at the Fabian & Claude Walter Galerie in Zurich brings together a number of photographic positions that explore the issues of lust, intimacy, fantasy und body.
Pictured are convergences of intense life styles as well as erotic relationships or staged encounters, ranging from ambiguous to passionate to explicit. Artists like Nan Goldin (1953), Larry Clark (1943) or André Gelpke (1947) document life on societal peripheries, even if those margins run straight through our hip neighborhoods and well-to-do suburbs, or through our circles of friends and families. Other photographers, like Erwin Olaf (1959) or Roshan Adhihetty (1990), confront us ... Exposition Exhibition : « Platinium » at Atlas Gallery Atlas Gallery's press release
A new exhibition at Atlas Gallery will showcase the beauty of the platinum print through the work of diverse international photographers and artists from the early 20th century to the present day.
Platinum-palladium is a traditional printing technique, dating from the 19th century, favoured by photographers and collectors due to the tonal range of the prints. Platinum prints are amongst the most permanent man-made objects – it is thought that a platinum image, properly preserved, can last more than 5000 years.
The painterly quality of the platinum print was embraced by masters of photographer in the early 20th Century such as Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz, who called the process ‘the prince of all media’. This quality, coupled with the tonal depth has le...

... Exposition Jean Paul Gaultier : « Merci aux photographes qui m'ont permis d'aiguiser mon oeil »
La photo n'est évidemment pas la star de l'exposition. La seule et unique étoile qui brille au Grand Palais, et ce jusqu'au 3 août, s'appelle Jean Paul Gaultier. Tout y est pour entretenir sa légende. Celle d'un petit garçon de banlieue pas comme les autres qui s'est hissé au sommet du monde de la mode. Si l'homme n'était pas aussi drôle et sympa, on le trouverait presque agaçant. A travers ses collections, ses souvenirs et autres mannequins bizarrement animés, on découvre ou (re)découvre le travail et la vie du couturier. L'occasion de laisser traîner notre œil un peu plus du côté des photos que des tissus. Petite visite guidée.

Exposition Herb Ritts was a leading American fashion photographer Herb Ritts (1952–2002) was a leading American fashion photographer of the 1980s and 1990s, known for his beautifully printed, formally bold, and sensual black-and-white images of supermodels such as Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. This new exhibition of the photographer’s work revisits the artist, whose groundbreaking 1996 retrospective, “Herb Ritts: WORK,” remains one of the most popular exhibitions in MFA history. The Ritts Foundation has given the Museum a print of every image in the 1996 exhibition, and in 2007, supported the MFA’s first gallery dedicated solely to photography. The Museum’s Herb Ritts and Clementine Brown galleries host the new exhibition, featuring an array of Ritts’s photographs celebrating the human body and embracing the carefree California lifestyle.
... Exposition « Supermodels – Then and Now » at Camera Work Gallery The self-curated exhibition shows more than 100 works of the best-known artists and a selection of outstanding fashion portrait and nude photography of the most famous supermodels of the last few decades.
According to Thomas P.Campbell, director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a worldwide successful model needs to be able to inspire the designer and to represent his intention. In this way a model can obtain a special iconic status and her face can become an own brand. In art, the motif of a supermodel has developed into an international scheduled genre which brings up maximum prices in auctions. The CWC Gallery appreciates this development with the group exhibition Supermodels - Then and Now and presents outstanding works of photographic history from the extensive collection of Camera Work AG and partly never seen ...

Edwynn Houk Gallery will present an exhibition of rare, vintage photographs by Herb Ritts (American, 1952-2002), focusing exclusively on the five models in his iconic work, “Stephanie, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Naomi, Hollywood, 1989.”
Herb Ritts’ indelible photographs came to define the era of the Supermodel, capturing the top models of the time in images that are, at turns, strong, vulnerable, sexy, intriguing and above all beautiful. While emblematic of the 1980s and ‘90s, his classic images transcend the boundaries of celebrity portraiture at the end of the 20th century. Ritts himself did not distinguish between his commercial work and his personal projects. In fact, the division between fashion photography and fine art has eroded significantly in the past few decades thanks in part to r... Exposition Herb Ritts, in Piena Luce
On Tuesday 10th December the exhibition In piena luce. Fotografie di Herb Ritts inaugurated at AuditoriumExpo of Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome. The exhibition is the first event of the new initiative Auditorium Fotografia. In piena luce, a production of Fondazione Musica per Roma and Fondazione FORMA per la Fotografia, in collaboration with the Herb Ritts Foundation and Contrasto, will be opened until March 2014.
Creator of the most vivid, dreamy and perfect images of the Hollywoodi star system, Herb Ritts has been a great interpreter of international photography. His are many portraits that have indeed built the image of celebrities such as Madonna, Michael Jackson or Richard Gere. His the slick and dreamlike fashion photographs, where shining Versace dresses and perfect body of models are immersed in an ... Exposition FORMA presents "Fashion, A century of extraordinary fashion photography" from the Condé Nast archives
On Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 6:30PM, the Fondazione Forma per la Fotografia, will present the opening of the exhibit Fashion. A century of extraordinary photography from the Condé Nast archives.
“We have to make Vogue into a Louvre.”
Edward Steichen to Edna Woodman Chase, 1920s
These words said by Steichen to the first editor in chief of Vogue aptly summarized the revolution started by Condé Nast, both in fashion as well as in photography more generally, when the publisher acquired the prestigious Vogue masthead in 1909. From then on, the story of fashion was no longer told exclusively in delicate nineteenth-century illustrations, but also by great international photographers with creative license. Edward Steichen was one of the first photographer to shoot for Vogue, accepti... Exposition Herb Ritts at Hamiltons, London
Marking a longstanding relationship with world-renowned American photographer Herb Ritts, Hamiltons’ forthcoming exhibition highlights prints from Herb’s private archive, the much anticipated release of new material from the Ritts Foundation, most of which has never been seen, reproduced or exhibited before. These prints were made by Herb around the time of each shoot; they were images that he particularly liked and set aside for himself.
Having been catalogued and preserved in the Foundation’s climate controlled vault since Ritts’ untimely death in December 2002, these rare and unique works exist in limited numbers and in many instances are the only print available. Original works, measuring 11 x 14 inches, they were printed and approved by Ritts during his lifetime. Each photograph is edi... Exposition Herb Ritts - Galerie Camera Work
CAMERA WORK is pleased to present photographs from Herb Ritts starting May 14, 2011. More than 50 photographs will give a comprehensive insight into the work of Herb Ritts, who passed away in 2002. All of the exhibited photographs were developed during the artist’s lifetime.
In the 1980s and the 1990s, the autodidact worked together with nearly every superstar. Among the exhibited portraits one can find names such as Madonna, Mick Jagger, Dustin Hoffman, David Bowie, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, and Cindy Crawford. Thanks to his unique vision, distinctive portraits as well as very aesthetic nude photographs came into existence. His great sensitivity and his stylistic confidence with regard to the usage of strict forms, creating a monumental sensuality, enabled Herb Ritts to create timeless icons a... Exposition NUDES Positions of Nude Art Photography
A group exhibition mainly curated from its own collection, displaying more than 40 photographers and their perspectives on mostly female nude art. Selected classics are supplemented with, in some cases, never before exhibited contemporary works of Blaise Reutersward, Nadav Kander, or Ralph Mecke.
The kaleidoscopic exhibition stretches from classical, nearly sculptural studio-stagings, as in the works of Horst P. Horst, Frantisek Drtikol, or Rudolf Koppitz, to the erotic and provocative images of Helmut Newton or Bettina Rheims, and extending to the series of documentary pictures by recently-deceased Larry Sultan, which originated off-set during pornographic shootings.

Exposition LE PARADIS, OU PRESQUE LOS ANGELES 1865-2008 L.A. ou si vous préférez Los Angeles, la cité des anges... et des démons. Pour quelques chanceux, L.A. est synonyme de soleil, de plage, de piscine, de corps sains et bronzés. Pour les autres, L.A. n'est souvent qu'une concentration d'autoroutes encombrées, de pollutions et de peurs de toutes sortes. C'est une ville sans centre et sans âme... Là-haut, dans les cieux, règnent les stars d'Hollywood; mais ici-bas, les habitants craignent un nouveau tremblement de terre ou le déclenchement d'émeutes. Rêve ou cauchemar? Réalité ou fiction? La vérité sur ce lieu mythique et fascinant se situe peut-être entre les deux.

Gallery Camera Work in Berlin presents from September 20th until November 15th an exhibition of fashion photography of the 20th and 21st centuries. This group exhibition provides a representative overview of the development of fashion photography from its beginnings in the 1920s to the present time. With over 250 works of a total of 65 photographers - many of which are vintages - one can trace the different trends of fashion photography.
The spectrum of the photographs on display ranges from the sometimes classic compositions of an Edward Steichen to the experimental photographs of Man Ray, from the sexual revolution to the resulting emancipation of women as shown for example by Helmut Newton, from the cool elegance of the 1990s - influenced by Peter Lindbergh - to the highly imaginative works of a Tim Walker.
