FROM THE ARCHIVE PART II

Passion and imagination have been the driving force in the work of many photographers. Horst P. Horst was a collector of objects and avid gardener and he created works enhanced with flowers from his rose garden or a simple flower picked in the fields. Steven Kleinís passion for horses includes 4 abstracted images of horses necks---exaggerating the strength, musculature, and beauty of the horses... a project which became a Calvin Klein advertising campaign. Louise Dahl-Wolfe traveled to Mexico and Hammamet where she recorded the architectural beauty of the arches, doorways, the light, and the magic of the location. Edward Steichen, in his 1931 image of the George Washington Bridge, focused his modernist vision on the essence of this extraordinary structure. Herbert Matter reconstructs and presents a new vision with his collages. Even Patrick Demarchelier takes time out from photographing the likes of Christy, Naomi, and Cindy to observe the natural beauty in nature... a single magnificent tree. The nude has been a subject for many photographers. In this exhibition, David Bailey, Jeanloup Sieff, and others show mastery of the form.
