A refined image of the body is to be exposed at the Gitterman gallery. Soft, tender photos cover gracefully the walls while his elegant subjects redefine the idea of love and the body. Each frame exhibited carries an old, vintage touch with it’s grainy black and white shots, reminiscing to a style known by Larry Clarke. Young, fresh bodies give a new vision of youth, with their free minds complimenting their tender skin. The young adults, lost in a moment of love, allude to Renaissance paintings, holding a certain delicacy of poise in a supreme way. Most photos, from the 1980’s, incorporate a raw effect from the 35mm film. This photographers work is composed of attitudes throwing the visitor back into their years of lust and folly.
