The exhibition Vincent Peters »Adriana Lima & Emma Watson« at Camera Work Virtual Gallery focuses on 24 remarkable, creative photographic portraits of the award-winning actress and activist Emma Watson and the supermodel Adriana Lima by the photographer Vincent Peters. These black-and-white portraits captivate the viewer with their artful staging, intimacy, and approachability. A number of these works are being presented for the first time worldwide. Vincent Peters has worked with Adriana Lima and Emma Watson on multiple occasions over the past ten years. During this time, he has created several world famous portraits. He has presented Adriana Lima in cinematic scenery many times and associates the model’s personality with her fictional roles. Therefore, some of his works are an homage to the genre of Italian neorealism. Adriana Lima’s versatile personality becomes clear in the artistic work relationship with Vincent Peters when they created new roles for the model. Emma Watson’s portraits share the cinematic vision as a starting point in the creative collaboration with the photographer. Emma Watson is staged in the silent movie era, and, in other works, embodies mysterious and imaginative figures who seem to have their origins in dreams.
Vincent Peters was born in Bremen, Germany, in 1969. By the age of 20, he moved to New York to work as a photo assistant. In 1995, he returned to Europe to work at several galleries while expanding on his own artistic projects. Four years later, in 1999, he started his career as fashion photographer working at Giovanni Testino’s artist management and creative content agency. Within one year, he was shooting campaigns for fashion brands such as Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, and Wolfgang Joop, subsequently developing a unique personal style with high recognition value. Vincent Peters was sought out by many renowned fashion houses like La Perla, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Emporio Armani, L’Oréal, Lancôme, Nike, Levi’s, and more. His photographs are published in international magazines such as »Vogue«, »GQ«, »The Sunday Times«, »Numéro«, and »Harper’s Bazaar«.
