“I am as prepared as I like to be. I have my subject, her trust, a location and an idea. The rest will be left to our chemistry and the moment.” – Mary McCartney

 

First published as a book in 2019 by HENI, Paris Nude is an intimate study of the female nude by British photographer Mary McCartney. Over the course of two days in the summer of 2016, McCartney stayed with her subject – Paris-based American-born Taiwanese writer, stand-up comedian and fashion collaborator Phyllis Wang at her Saint Germain apartment in Paris, photographing Wang in the nude to produce an extraordinary and intimate series of images.

 

The exhibition is on The Little Black Gallery’s online art platform GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!, celebrating the female form, from 1 November – 31 December at www.girlsgirlsgirls.org

 

The delicate photographs showcase the intimacy and trust required from both subject and photographer. Over the course of their time together, we see the model increasingly relax in front of the camera as she assumes various poses, and an unspoken bond between the two gradually develops.

 

Mary McCartney focuses on discovering those rare moments of unguarded intimacy that offer new insights into her photographic subjects. Her work in portraiture and candid reportage photography is suffused with a deep personal investment that captures the creative chemistry between photographer and subject.

The Darkest Hour

Crushed by grief and sorrow. Lost alone. Attempting to communicate with no words. Sunrise after this darkest hour is the one and only hope for us.

SELF by SAINT LAURENT

SELF by SAINT LAURENT

An international photo celebration held simultaneously in six different cities.


For the seventh iteration of SAINT LAURENT’s art project SELF, the Parisian fashion house have partnered with six photographers from across the globe to display exhibitions in six separate cities. The works on show honour the importance of self-expression and the unique personality of the SAINT LAURENT brand. Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello personally selected photographers for the project from the pioneering photographic cooperative Magnum Photos.

 

In New York, the photographs of Alex Webb depict Los Angeles’ Piñata, Flower, and Fashion Districts, integrating his own recognisable vibrant style into the identity of SAINT LAURENT. In Paris, Harry Gruyaert’s shot capture fascination with the liminal aura of airports. The photoset shot at the city’s Charles de Gaulle airport employs prominent use of primary colours to display the ‘strong impression of being between two worlds’ as Gruyaert himself puts it. Olivia Arthur’s show in London, titled So not so offers us an exploration of the physical world and human bodies, as a respite from the virtual worlds that have ‘grown to become a genuine reality’.

TOKYO – Takashi Homma

SHANGHAI – Birdhead

As well as the three aforementioned members of the Magnum Photos collective, Vaccarello has also looked to three guest members hailing from the Far East to complete the SELF 07 series. In Seoul, Daesung Lee’s works document the impact of COVID on his relationship with the natural world and offers a reflection on his rural upbringing. In contrast, Takashi Hamma’s collection in Tokyo uses the camera obscura technique to capture the hustle and bustle of the city’s urban centre, and the way in which the pressure of the city relates to the fashion seen on its streets. Completing the set, photographic duo Birdhead are digitally presenting work in Shanghai. They have aligned the images in a grid format, inspired by the photographic matrix and employing inverted negatives for the first time.

 

The audacious international exhibition is open in all six global locations from June 9th 2022.

More information on the series can be found on the SAINT LAURENT website.

Donnie Dix

Shot in New York City, Donnie Dix is a tribute to the brashness of the 80s. Directed by Sascha Taylor Larsen and produced by Oliver Finley, it is a parody of the type of naive self-obsession which characterised this period in our cultural history. The main character, played by Eli Cusick, embodies the absurdity of an era filled with excess. He represents a particular type of machismo coupled with a total lack of personal accountability. In just over three minutes, Donnie Dix’s character arc unfolds as he moves from total self-assurance to an increasing self-awareness, then the self-doubt which ultimately paralyses him.

 

Donnie Dix is a representation of the collective consciousness of the late 80s based on the films, music, literature and cultural references we have been brought up with. This playful mood is reflected through Josh Herzog’s cinematography, Alex Hass’ lighting and Alexia Salingaros’ colouring. The feeling of the late 80s is also portrayed through Alexandra Ruggieri’s production design, which was influenced by old 1980’s Ikea catalogues and postmodernist design. The styling choices of Gaby Sprenkle, who was inspired by iconic productions such as Miami Vice and The Lost Boys, also served to create the 80s vibe. 

 

The singularity of this music video is that the whole concept stems from the lyrics, written by Taylor Larsen himself. These lyrics reflect a young man who exudes self-assurance, but underneath it all is riddled by self-doubt. Based on this vision, Taylor Larsen asked award-winning composer Eivind Hannisdal to create a sound reminiscent of Jan Hammer’s Miami Vice soundtrack but filled with irony. Hannisdal recreates an authentic 80s sound with live musicians and Taylor Larsen’s humorous lyrics are further exaggerated by this use of the 80s sound.  

 

Donnie Dix is currently touring across the international awards circuit, with the first screening taking place at the Academy Award® qualifying Norwegian Short Film Festival in Grimstad between June 8 – 12, 2022.
