Moscow, Povarskaya str. 31/29
Askeri Gallery and ArtOnline24 Gallery are pleased to present a new exhibition “White” by Anton Lange.
Anton Lange is a classic of Russian film photography. His works have regularly appeared not only at the majority of important exhibitions, but also on pages of leading glossy magazines such as ELLE, Voque, GQ etc. Adventurer in spirit, Anton has released several large-scale photo- and film- projects in recent years, including "Russia from the train window" and "Ridge. The Caucasus from sea to sea".
Anton Lange is one of the first Russian photographers, who has started to produce the author's signed & numbered prints ‑ since then many of his works have become bestsellers and entered private collections.
The photographer regularly replenishes collections of limited editions pieces. He is well known for daring implementation of his works, including extra-large formats and using the latest materials and printing technology. His attention is drawn to the interaction of photography and a certain space.
Classic genres (landscape, portrait, nude) will be represented at the exhibition. Main characters of the narrative are the sea, the sun, bleached houses and of course, attractive naked body of the unknown woman.
Extensive art material of Anton Lange requires a large-scale retrospective. At the exposition, guests will be able to see photographs, which have never been exhibited before. These works could be counted as the starting point of new artistic projects that are currently being prepared by Anton Lange. Thus, there will be unique opportunity within “White” exhibition to look behind the scenes of the photographer’s working process, to see how masterpieces are born.
Wrapped with misty air, sometimes blurry images and big film "grain" in Lange’s works resemble paintings of the Impressionists. At the same time, the photographer is not afraid of using hard light, deep shadows, high contrast, continuing a tradition of Helmut Newton.
The intimate atmosphere of the exhibition encourages the viewer to discover new facets of photographer’s artworks. At the same time, the exhibition "White" symbolizes the appeal of Anton Lange to the roots of the classics of photography in its highest manifestation.
