In the Spotlight

12/22/2012 - 01/12/2013

INSTALLATION IMAGES

“In the Spotlight” is a spirited exhibition that highlights the public face of photography. Our society has always had a fascination with fame, fortune and fashion and throughout the last half century photographers have mythologized creative thinkers, leaders, and artists. It has turned them into public icons.

In an almost ironic twist photography and the photographic image has achieved such a heightened importance in the art market that many of the photographers included in this exhibition have themselves become superstars.

The exhibit displays the works of: Patrick Demarchelier, Albert Watson, Arthur Elgort, Bernard of Hollywood, Clive Arrowsmith, Neil Leifer, Bruce Weber, Harry Benson, Frank Horvat among others.
