Just told you that I was upset having missed one – this is an exhibition I’ll definitely see.
One of my favourite British fashion photographer, Adrian Wilson creates high end art photographs that depict his love for the fantastical, beautiful, and awe-inspiring world around us. Inspired by beauty and the fashion world, Adrian has worked as a photographer and magazine editor for Sang Bleu which I love.
The solo exhibition I Need You More Than You Need Me at the GGGallery presents a retrospective of Wilson’s beautiful and provocative fashion photography as well as personal work that spans the past fifteen years of his career. Not only will he expose us to his edgy fashion shots but also to the things that he personally considers beautiful and interesting – some of his most impressive works altogether, comprising a collection of portraits, fashion images and snapshots all united by an acute sense of the corporeal and clandestine. Alluding to the ambivalence of power-relations and the duality of seduction, Wilson focuses on the fear and fascination of the forbidden and fetishised materiality of the body and original object. These notions of fetishism visible in both published and unpublished images assigned to Sang Bleu are underscored by an apparent compulsion to repeat and reproduce specific photographic motifs.
Pervaded by a touch of irony his images in I need You More Than You Need Me unfold an intriguing world of obsessions, vanity, narcissism and voyeurism.
Go and see!
Until 27th August 2011 at GG Gallery
