Simply David Seidner

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of 10 Corso Como, the Carla Sozzani Galleria in Milan presents for the first time in Italy an exhibition by David Seidner, one of the leading fashion photographers of the 80s and 90s.

The exhibit, featuring exhibition prints by the International Center of Photography, includes a body of fifty photographs that trace his photographic research in its constant oscillation between fashion, portrait and art history. «What I’m most interested in – explained Seidner – is evoking the spirit of a painting through the fold of fabric, the position of a hand, the quality of light on skin».

Born in Los Angeles in 1957 and prematurely passed away in 1999 at forty-two, at seventeen David Seidner moved to Paris to work as a fashion photographer. By nineteen, his pictures were appearing on magazine covers and his collaborations with the fashion world would start to deepen. The earlier images made by this American photographer document the work of the couturiers Azzedine Alaïa, Chanel, Madame Grès, Jean Patou, Ungaro and Valentino. In 1980 he worked exclusively for two years with Yves Saint Laurent. His images have appeared in magazines such as Vogue (Italy, France, America), Harper's Bazaar, Harper's & Queen, The New York Times Magazine, and Vanity Fair, and have influenced fashion photography for decades.

«Seidner – it is possible to read on the presentation text of the event – continued throughout his career to use the techniques of fragmentation, dynamic lighting, and cropping he had begun to explore earlier. The music of John Cage, the composer of aleatoric music and the author of Music of Changes inspired much of Seidner’s aesthetic research. In these works, the face or body of the model is visually cut up and collaged together through multiple exposures, reflections in pieces of mirror, or by chemical manipulations in the printing. In 1977, Seidner had been hired by the Los Angeles Times to do a portrait of John Cage. While trying to correct the distortions of the photo lens, he shot five different angles of Cage's body. This was a transformative moment in which Seidner realized the strength of composition of his subjects presented with these fragments when combined into a complete image». The rest is history.
Opening: Saturday September 3rd, 2016, from 3,00 pm to 8,00 pm.
