‘Selected Works 1990-2020’ Virtual Exhibition
THE VIRTUAL EXHIBITION
Hosted on Art Partner’s website, users navigated the virtual exhibition at their own pace as they would in the real-world to see, discover, and experience Glen Luchford’s artwork in an entirely novel way through the simplicity of a common internet browser.
The exhibition featured the photographer’s most well-known pieces alongside personal images that have not been widely shown to the public. The body of work on view encompasses his ‘slice-of-life’ style, portraiture, and fantasy, all of which are noted for their cinematic qualities. Luchford first entered the public sphere in the late 1990s through his campaigns for Prada, which combined sophisticated lighting techniques and an unconventional rawness.
The photographer’s intimate and often gritty black-and-white portraits from the 1990s of musical icons such as Bjork, to more energetic street shots of Kate Moss capture the spirit of a city and its people in transition. In later work, Luchford’s caught-in-the-moment style of photography has given way to a more refined portraiture with subtle undertones of his earlier rawness. In recent years, especially through his collaboration with Gucci, Luchford’s imagery has embraced an over-the-top fantasy that is both modern and nostalgic.
