Holden Luntz Gallery presents, “Just Out of Reach: Pictures with an Edge” running through May 28th. The three photographers included in the group exhibition (Andre de Plessel, David Yarrow, and Albert Watson) explore the potential of the medium to instantly enthrall, provoke, and tempt viewers with deftly captured and expertly composed images.
Although Albert Watson has had a multi-faceted career shooting a variety of subjects, his portraits of women are among his most acclaimed work. A Vogue photographer beginning in the 1970s, much of Watson’s personal and commercial work in fashion and nudes are imbued with a meditative aura and atmosphere. Renowned for such images as his nudes of Kate Moss in Marrakech and his silhouette of Naomi Campbell, Watson explores female beauty and remains an unpredictable photographer.
Andre de Plessel creates dramatic and strong images with a focus on the female form. He strives to bring out the sophisticated, yet erotic side of his subjects that he believes is within all people. The photographs convey and play upon sensual tension, as opposed to blatant sexuality. Much power, silence, and an intensive atmosphere surround his dramatically lit work.
David Yarrow‘s pursuit of capturing close and active encounters with the natural world has led him to overcome the challenges of shooting in some of the most remote and inhospitable locations on the planet. Creating pure and distinctly dynamic images as a result of his unique eye and perseverance, he photographs the majestic natural world by exposing its beautiful yet oftentimes savage side.
