Irving Penn: Radical Beauty

Posted June 20th by in Photography

Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco presents RADICAL BEAUTY 1946 – 2007, an exhibition of photographs by Irving Penn. On view from June 30 to August 20, the works span six decades of the artist’s influential career. The nearly thirty photographs on view explore Penn’s radical and long-standing investigation into what constitutes beauty, an aspect of his career that has received only passing attention. These works reflect the artist’s deep appreciation for the diversity of human physiognomy, and challenge a media-driven and image-saturated society that has narrowed the very idea of beauty.

STEFANIE SCHNEIDER’s Polaroids

Posted June 16th by in Photography

“Stefanie Schneider’s scintillating situations take place in the American West. Situated on the verge of an elusive super-reality, her photographic sequences provide the ambience for loosely woven story lines and a cast of phantasmic characters.  Schneider works with the largely uncontrollable chemical mutations of expired polaroid film stock. Chemical explosions of color spreading across the surfaces undermine the photograph’s commitment to reality and induce her characters into trance-like dreamscapes. Like flickering sequences of old road movies Schneider’s images seem to evaporate before conclusions can be made – their ephemeral reality manifesting in subtle gestures and mysterious motives. Schneider’s images refuse to succumb to reality, they keep alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction.” www.instantdreams.net

Pedro Lourenço Resort 2012

Posted June 15th by in Fashion

Pedro Lourenço has been drawing attention in Paris for masterful workmanship that belies his age—the Brazilian wunderkind is barely 21. Resort finds him in typically meticulous form but upping the real-world appeal even more than he did in his breakthrough Fall show. Inspired by his roots, he recruited the Brazilian artist Lelli de Orleans e Bragança to create the exclusive—and very on-trend—tropical bird paintings that he converted into prints for his deceptively simple shifts. Deceptively simple, in part, because the parrots’ tails are cut out and glued to wrap around the back side of the silk dresses (yes, they’re still hand-washable). READ MORE >>>
