A double exhibition of iconic and rediscovered photographs by Sylvie Blum and Giovanni Gastel is set to open at Munich’s IMMAGIS Gallery on 25 October 2018: Power meets Poetry pays tribute to strong women with alluring presentations of the female body, spanning from the nineties to today. The showcase will be on display until 23 January 2019.
As a former model Sylvie Blum frequently posed for her husband, the renowned erotic photographer Gunter Blum. In the aftermath of her husband’s death, Blum moved behind the camera, honing her photographic skills at the Mannheim College of Art. Since the late nineties, she has been building a body of work that centres around highly stylised depictions of women in mesmerisingly aesthetic poses.
Giovanni Gastel (b. 1955) is considered the grand seigneur of Italian fashion photography. The double exhibition includes Gastel’s enchanting images of women dressed as angels or adorned with butterfly wings, as well as portraits created for fashion brands such as Krizia or magazines such as VOGUE Espana.
