CAMERA WORK Gallery presents a new exhibition »Arthur Elgort« starting on December 11, 2021

CAMERA WORK Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition »Arthur Elgort« starting on December 11, 2021. The exhibition features more than 40 photographic works—among them large-sized portraits. They give an insight into the creative work of the internationally renowned photographer who changed the genre of fashion photography with his particular style from the beginning of the 1970s. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Germany.

Arthur Elgort was born in New York City in 1940. As a teenager he attended the prestigious Stuyvesant High School and then went on to study painting at Hunter College. From early on, he realized that he wanted to express himself artistically in a more diverse way and therefore he decided to take a chance on photography. This turned into a passion, and he had found his true talent. Soon ager, in 1971, he made his debut in British »Vogue«. With that he gained a permanent place in the world of fashion photography, which he has influenced substantially during is 50-year-long career up to the present day.

Arthur Elgort brought a breath of fresh air to the staged and stiff studio shoots of the early 1970s. Channeling the idea of the Impressionists, the former painting student encouraged his models to move freely creating a snapshot aesthetic outside in the »real world« which was beyond the standard of the day. The exhibition shows lively models with less make-up in natural lighting, portrayed by Arthur Elgort with his unmistakable personal style. Among them are world-famous photographs of fashion icons and supermodels such as Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Helena Christensen, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Gia, Linda Evangelista, and Beverly Johnson.

Besides these iconic portraits, the exhibition gives an insight into Arthur Elgort’s versatility as a photo artist, in which context his passionate photographic work on classical ballet took place and in which intriguingly relaxed portraits of the Rolling Stones and their world-renowned lead singer Mick Jagger were taken.

Purplehaze Genderless issue presentation at Hazegallery

Last night, PURPLEHAZE MAGAZINE celebrated the launch of their 6 issue by throwing an incredible fashion industry launch party in Berlin’s beautiful and historic Schoneberg Area. HAZEGALLERY heated up like a sauna jammed packed with fashion insiders, photographers, stylists, make-up artists, models – some budding, others aspiring, were all there eager to get in on the PURPLEHAZE buzz and swap business cards.

The star attraction was the cover star himself Mark Bryan , who came extra for the presentation in a dazzling skirt and high heels! We would like at this point thank you Marriott Hotel for hosting our special guest for his stay in Berlin.

Other big highlight of the evening was the fashion show “fashion moment” styled by Miguel Maldonado with designer stars like Giuseppe Tella, BRACHMANN, Remesalt Official, Tanja Christiani and makeup and hairstyling by Nadia Kosh. And many others who had worked with, or were keen on the prospect of working with PURPLEHAZE.

Although this is the magazine’s 6 issue, PURPLEHAZE is a fully visual fashion and art magazine that targets fashion insiders as well as contemporary art creatives in graphic and photography industry. Their focus is on long editorial spreads that push boundaries of fashion, photography, art, design, creative talent/artists, contemporary culture, beauty, while showcasing fascinating models and their personalities.

When discussing the 6 issue’s theme «GENDERLESS», Editor-in-Chief Iren Russo states in her Letter From the Editor, «Today the issue of gender has gained particular importance. The digital society we exist in incorporates tons of images in our daily lives. Being constantly bombarded by the obtrusive pictures that tell us who we are and what we should be, we finally give up, identifying ourselves with the imagery. How may it affect our ways of life, worldviews, artistic activities? With the #006 issue titled ‘Genderless’, I invite you to discover the endlessly appealing topic of gender, the way it’s being formed, perceived, and challenged“

There was a lot that was new at this year’s fair, and we are not just referring to the change in dates and venue.

We introduced ‘The Inbetween: Digital Art as NFTs’, a new section of the fair that was developed in collaboration with CADAF (Contemporary and Digital Art Fair). It was also only the second time that we presented the collective booth Created in Moscow, together with Moscow’s Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development and the Agency for Creative Industries. This year, the booth was dedicated to sculpture.

Finally, for our Collector’s Eye program, we displayed selected works from the collections of Alexey and Vera Priyma (Moscow) and Evgeny Khamin (Voronezh).

We are infinitely grateful to our partners who made it possible for the fair to take place: the official partner Ruinart, the automotive partner Audi, the innovative partner Samsung, the partner Hutton Development, the watch partner Breguet, the Cosmoscow Online partner Visa, the partner Otkritie Private Banking and the official hotel The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya.

MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK BERLIN AND MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK RUSSIA IN MOSCOW AGREED ON DESIGNER EXCHANGE

MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK BERLIN AND MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK RUSSIA IN MOSCOW AGREED ON DESIGNER EXCHANGE

NASTYA NEKRASOVA, a Russian brand and permanent participant of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia joined MBFW Berlin for the first time. The video presentation of NASTYA NEKRASOVA’s digital collection was streamed at mbfw.berlin on September 7, as well as at MBFW Berlin’s official social media accounts. The digital show by NASTYA NEKRASOVA was arranged under the global initiative MBFW International Editions Vol 1 for designer exchange between Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks.  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia in Moscow and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin made an agreement, and in turn a designer from MBFW Berlin will join the fall season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia scheduled for September 19 through 23.

“The new collection has been inspired by ASSA, a super-popular Soviet film, namely the night dreams of the protagonist,” says Anastasia Nekrasova.

“Global collaboration and allying are major trends of the new era. The more experience we share, the more we communicate, all the more opportunities for designers from across the globe – it is easier for them to get into the spotlight, to be sustainable and unique,” believes Alexander Shumsky, President of Russian Fashion Council and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia.

NASTYA NEKRASOVA uses organic and recycled materials, supports local artisans and manufacturers and follows the slow fashion principles – less clothes, better quality. In 2021, the brand started a new totally digital clothing line.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin is taking place from September 6 to 8, both offline and online. Complementing these shows are presentations of fashion films by Marc Cain and talks by „She‘s Mercedes The Studio X MBFW Berlin“, a panel talk of the „Fashion Council Germany“ and three „Fashion Open Studio x MBFW talks“.

She as the mirror which reflects our deepest fears and desires, she as the deposit of one’s tenderness and vehicle for self-awareness, she as the bridge to connect with one’s feelings and emotions. In the exhibition ‚Sie‘, Francisco ‚Totem‘ Perez shows us the different nuances of life thought the color spectrum with androgynous and feminine figures as the interpreters of scenes who invites us to a vindication of feelings, the creative spirit and the inner feminine which resides in every individual.

The second artists weekend and this time devoted to our fabulous Jana Jacob, will be open from 6th – 8th of August at the Haze Gallery. Captivated by the endless aesthetic and formal possibilities of the materiality of the human body, Jacob makes a highly sensual and tactile impression of surface and mass in her monumental acryl paintings. Subjects are imbued with a sculptural yet elusive dimensionality that verges on the abstract. In recent paintings, she renews her enduring figurative investigations by depicting bodies embracing and intertwined.

Artist weekend. Kleber Cianni

We are launching a series of mini-shows in the Haze Gallery space. The Artist Weekend will include a 3-day solo exhibition, artist encounter, artist talk, and special offers to purchase selected works.

This cycle is opened by our Brazilian-Italian artist Kleber Cianni. Kleber’s work is a mixture between reality and fiction, between the present and colorful ancestral heritage. Abstract portraits created by him are born at the junction of these two worlds—a riot of colors and shapes, living their own lives and filling everything around.

From 2 to 4 July, we invite you to look into the eyes of this nonexistent real world.

Purplehaze Gender issue 006 available for preorder from now!

Gender is something we don’t choose, so we better take it for granted (lucky the one who finds it easy). Gender doesn’t define our mental and physical abilities to the extent social attitudes do…What else do you know of gender? For the latest #006 print edition, we at Purplehaze invited our favourite artists, photographers, models, and producers to share their personal vision of gender with the public… It turned out fresh and curious!

Print on demand is already available. Make sure you’ve pre-ordered your copy at Haze Gallery or on our website:
purplehazemag.com/shop/

The release of #006 Genderless is planned for September, 01.
