Vincent Peters Exhibition from March 24 to May 20, 2018

Gallery CAMERA WORK is pleased to present a solo exhibition of photographer Vincent Peters starting on the March 24, 2018 including almost 40 works. It comprises a selection of his main oeuvre from over ten years as well as new works, which are shown for the first time worldwide.

The exhibition gives a profound insight into the fashion and nude photography of Vincent Peters, one of the leading photographers in his field. The first part of the exhibition includes impressive photographs of international models and supermodels: among them Cindy Crawford, Laetitia Casta, Adriana Lima and Milla Jovovich. Worldwide equally highly esteemed are his portraits of personalities such as Charlize Theron, Emma Watson and Penélope Cruz.

A selection of the most  famous pieces is shown in the second part of the exhibition. The third and newest part can be entitled with «Personal». It shows women in staged moments, inspired from the perfected studio photography of the 20th century and cineastic close-up photography. Thereby the photographer pays attention to the creation of a luxurious and classical backdrop in order to present the women in a sensual and timeless atmosphere. This becomes especially significant in his ballet sceneries, which could through their character and composition, remind of Degas’ paintings. Beyond a pure contemplative approach, all works of Vincent Peters serve multilayered interpretations, which can
be developed by the spectator.

Besides the depiction of the woman, all works have something in common: they show the importance of using light in photography as a precondition for high-quality artworks. The diligent handling with light proves to be meaningful for Vincent Peters’ style. Incidences of light emphasize the female body in a subtle but focused way. The setting and costumes are integrated in a visual arrangement with light and shadow, which create a silent, classic-romantical mood. Despite the late modern, inflationary flood of celebrity pictures, Vincent Peters’ portraits touch the spectator’s visual memory and remain there, thanks to his particular phrasing. The fundament for his aesthetical realization is a trustful and professional connection between model and photographer.
Stereoptype or quoted poses from fashion and celebrity images are not part of his work – rather it contains the sense and eye of elegant gestures, dramatic moments and graceful movements.
These become an expression of the individual personality and artistic sentiment in the photographs.

Vincent Peters

Born in Bremen, Germany, in 1969 Vincent Peters moved to New York City at the age of twenty to work as a photographer’s assistant. After returning to Europe in 1995, he worked for various art
galleries and on personal projects. In 1999 he began his career at Giovanni Testino’s agency as a fashion photographer. Within a year Vincent Peters shot worldwide campaigns for brands such as Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, and Wolfgang Joop. He established himself with a recognizable style, and major fashion houses like La Perla, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Emporio Armani, L’Oréal, Lancôme, Nike, Levi’s, and many others came to him as corporate clients. His photographs appear in international magazines such as «Vogue«, «GQ», «The Sunday Times», «Numéro», «Harper’s Bazaar» and many more.

CWC GALLERY is pleased to present the exhibition “Claudia Schiffer” from September 23

The group exhibition includes 100 photographs of Claudia Schiffer and is the biggest exhibition dedicated to Claudia Schiffer so far. The photobook of the same title is being published by Rizzoli Publishing House (international issue) and Prestel Publishing House (German issue).

The exhibition at CWC GALLERY is an homage to Claudia Schiffer and her work with famous photographers. After her breakthrough as a model at the age of 17, Claudia Schiffer is celebrating her 30th anniversary as a supermodel this year. Already her first professional photographs created by Ellen von Unwerth made her world famous and aroused the interest of numerous fashion designers, Karl Lagerfeld being among them. In the 1990s, Claudia Schiffer emerged as a member of the famous group of supermodels with Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington.

The selection of the exhibited works covers a timespan from the late 1980s until 2011 and presents famous fashion photographs, portraits and nudes. More than 15 artists show their pieces in which they present Claudia Schiffer’s elegance, dignity and her extraordinary artistic understanding. Ellen von Unwerth’s photographs underline Claudia Schiffer’s sex appeal, Miles Aldridge plays with her mutability, Herb Ritts praises her classic beauty and Camilla Akrans cites art history with the help of the German supermodel.

The range of the photographs shows Claudia Schiffer’s career and proves her essential role in the history of fashion culture. Moreover, the works also unveil the exceptional synergy between the photographers and her, which is the basis of timeless, intense and precious pieces of art.
