Hot Summer City: Street Photography Exhibition w/ Special Guest Curator

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Hot Summer City: Street Photography Exhibition will be held in the cultural heart of Pittsburgh, PA: Lawrenceville.  Home to celebrated artists, most notably Andy Warhol, the former steel making capital is now referred to as "The Paris of Appalachia" due to its deep connections to the arts and world-class museums.  

Vestige Concept Gallery is seeking street photography that captures the essence of urban life in the summertime. Summer is an intense and multifaceted season that brings joy, freedom, and social opportunities. When we think of representing the season through photography we envision warm light, deep shadows, and/or depictions of late nights, summer fun, and enjoying time outdoors. We are also interested in works that capture the dark side of summer: oppressive heat; struggling to keep cool; and surviving the "dog days of summer."  The show will be Special Guest Curated by Rafael Fuchs.
 
About the Curator:  

Rafael Fuchs is a Brooklyn-based artist, photographer, director, curator and producer. He has earned his place as one of the most important photographers of his generation.

A recipient of many awards, Rafael has captured portraits and images of some of the most influential figures of the past 30 years. His images have fronted magazine covers, and have become part of distinctive private collections and Museums around the globe, including The National Portrait Gallery in London. (Portraits of JK Rowling and Emily Watson.)

In 2012 Rafael launched Fuchs Projects art space, with its headquarters in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY. This open creative lab features his works, as well as artworks of many other emerging artists. It has also been featured in numerous art fairs, such as Scope Miami, Art Market Hamptons, Select NY, Affordable Artfair Amsterdam, Art Karlsruhe Germany, and more.

Rafael Fuchs’ work is diverse, and includes portraits, fashion, personal social documentary, and street photography. He published 12 books including:
“I AM AMERIKAN” (2011)
"Bushwick Forever_Volume 1” (2016)
"WOMEN R BEAUTIFUL”  ( Volumes 1-4) 2019-2021 

Among the long list of well-known personalities that he captured are: Burt Reynolds, Mary J. Blige, Colin Powell, George Steinbrenner, Frank Stella, Paul Cadmus, Barry Diller, Heather Graham,  Julia Stiles, Pink, John Cameron Mitchell, Sir Jonathan Ive, Beyonce, Destiny’s Child , Patty Hearst, Malcolm McLaren, Nathan Lane, Regis Philbin, Larry King, Ang Lee, Howard Bloom, George Plimpton, Grand Master Flash, Dave Eggers, John McCain, Derek Jeter, Steve Case, Bob Denver (Gilligan), James Marsden , Geoffrey Rush, Bobby Flay, Tony Bennett, Alber Elbaz, Arlo Guthrie, Darren Aronofsky…to name a few.

He resides in Brooklyn, NY and works between NYC-Zurich-Copenhagen-Tel Aviv.
