About the Item

All prints are limited edition. Available in multiple sizes. High-end framing on request. All prints are done and signed by the artist. The collector receives an additional certificate of authenticity from the gallery. Gérard Uféras takes us backstage to catch a glimpse of how the magic of high fashion is made. We get to see models changing, final touches on their dresses and the titillating moments before entering the runway. Uféras’ work is an ode to the people who make, perfect, and bring fashion to life. This beautiful black and white fine art print is a closeup of a model's Chest. She is wearing a stiff white blouse with a deep V-neck. Another Person is adjusting the shirt collar, only their hands are visible in the shot. The chaos of clothing racks, models and tailors backstage of a fashion show is visible in the blurry background, creating an intriguing and somewhat abstract image. Daring women, teint de porcelaine and delicate tracings in silver; the French star photographer Gérard Uféras creates masterpieces radiant with a certain je-ne-sais-quoi. Moving the noise of everyday life into the background for a moment, his works are aesthetic oases for the senses. Curving down an exposed back, delineating delicate lines, or an ephemeral smile: Uféras is the connoisseur of fashion and ballet photography. His works are an homage to female elegance, playfulness, and jest.

  • Kate Moss playing Trivial Pursuit - fine art photography, 1993
    By Arthur Elgort
    Located in Vienna, AT
    All prints are limited edition. Available in multiple sizes. High-end framing on request. All prints are done and signed by the artist. The collector receives an additional certificate of authenticity from the gallery. With this image, Arthur Elgort captured the famous Kate Moss away from the rockstar lifestyle she was usually seen pursuing. Here, she sits at a table, half-empty glasses and a single candle in front of her. She is wearing a cozy sweater and no makeup, and her hair is in a bun. In one hand, she is holding a cigarette; with the other, she is grabbing playing cards out of a well-used and worn trivial pursuit Box. The grainy black and white image has a cozy and familiar feel as if the viewer were sitting at the table with Kate Moss herself. One can almost hear soft piano music and happy laughter in the background of an intimate and happy meeting between friends.

In this captivating black and white photograph, the scene unfolds with young ballet dancers adorned in pristine white tutus. Positioned before a window, soft natural light bathes the space, casting gentle highlights and shadows on their poised figures. The dancers are in the midst of preparation, their graceful postures capturing a serene moment of anticipation before practice. The contrast between the purity of their tutus and the shadows adds a timeless elegance to the composition, emphasizing both the discipline and artistry inherent in ballet.
