European fashion and art photographer Marc Lagrange will present his first solo U.S. Show, exhibition preview and gala opening in Miami.
Lagrange’s preview reception will take place on November 9 at 9 p.m. with a gala opening planned for November 10 at LMNT Arts Gallery in Miami’s Midtown district. Based in Belgium, Lagrange has had his photographs featured in leading European fashion magazines and a series of collector’s edition monographs.
Known for his distinctive large format and Polaroid works of fashion and art, Lagrange favors seduction instead of sex. According to a press release, his images “do not deal with ordinary settings or regular situations. They focus on dreams and fantasies, escaping logic with the constraints of reality.”
Arseny Vesnin, chief editor of Designcollector, and a leading European citric, said, “Ever since the 1980s, the decade in which Lagrange dedicated himself for good to photography, he has created intriguing portraits and nudes of his muses, femmes fatales full of secrets and fantasies, with an underlying decadent impulse.
Co-founder of NAC Gallery, which is mounting the show at LMNT, Vincent Harrison, added, “We’re very pleased to have the first opportunity to showcase Marc’s work in the United States. Marc has an amazing ability to create images that provoke and captivate the viewer, and I definitely believe American audiences are ready to celebrate and collect his works. Many of the photographs he’ll be exhibiting have never been seen before.”
LMNT Arts Gallery is located at 59 NW 36th Street in Miami’s Midtown district.
