Danziger Projects is pleased to announce our move to 527 West 23rd Street which will openwith a two room show featuring the Kate Moss Portfolio and additional photographs of Moss by
Gene Lemuel, Glen Luchford, Mary McCartney, Herb Ritts, and Peter Blake.
The portfolio (produced by Danziger Projects in collaboration with Kate Moss) contains eleven 30 x 24 inch prints by eleven of the world's leading photographers all of who have played a key
role in picturing Ms. Moss. The artists are:
Mert & Marcus
Inez Van Lamsweerde + Vinoodh Matadin
Unlike any model in the history of fashion photography, Kate Moss has proved to be a unique
subject blurring the boundaries between fashion photography and contemporary art. In a
career that has lasted 23 years to date, it can be said that Moss's particular beauty and singular
figure have made her more of a muse than a supermodel. No matter what she is wearing (or
not wearing) Moss invariably becomes the subject of the photograph, supercharging the image
and inspiring photographers to create some of their most imaginative work. Unselfconscious
and unapologetic, Moss's persona and sensuality have not only changed our notions of beauty
but also influenced the culture at large.
In addition to the portfolio, the gallery will be showing unseen photographs of Moss taken in
1988 (the year before her career was launched in The FACE) by Gene Lemuel; Glen Luchford's
pictures of Kate in Times Square on her first trip to New York; rarely seen pictures by Mary
McCartney and Herb Ritts; and a recent series of silkscreens by British artist Peter Blake which
place Moss in the pantheon of iconic pop-cultural figures.
