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.
