Vernissage: 18th of November 2011, GunGallery (Stockholm)

The Norwegian photographer, Sølve Sundsbø, is definitely one of the pioneers of heavily manipulated fashion photography. Today — he is even regarded as a fashion institution by some people.

Sundsbø´s career started when he moved to London in 1995 — where he served Nick Knight for the next four years. His mentor was a hard teacher but the hardness paid off and Sundsbø entered the fashion world, stooped by experience and got important clients such as Tom Ford, YSL, Gucci, Dior and Armani.

In Pictures from Savage beauty, Sundsbø elevates one of the most adored fashion icon of our time — Alexander McQueen. Originally, he produced the 144 pictures for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as they were showcased in an exhibition dedicated to McQueen shortly after his suicide.

The pictures are build upon Sundsbø´s idea of photographing some of McQueen´s favorite models, covered with white body painting. In the post-production, he removed some typical body parts, making the models look like dolls or mannequins but retained their original movements and poses. The retrospective exhibition became one of the most attended show at the Metropolitan last year.
