In 1950 Irving Penn said: “A fashion picture is a portrait, just as a portrait is a fashion picture.”
Taking this quote as the starting point, Ross Garrett presents a photographic exhibition at Glow Studio in Johannesburg from 7 to 9 October 2011.
Garrett shows a selection of images that range in expression from vulnerable intimacy to striking, constructed mask. The work is about people and image making, while also reflecting on the diverse relationships that occur between a photographer and his subjects.
A personal exploration of the debatable boundaries between fine art and fashion photography, the exhibition has images from test shoots done by Garrett as well as fashion spreads.
