Photo London 2024
For Photo London 2024 ATLAS Gallery will present an exciting booth mixing both contemporary and 20th century fashion photography with works by Patrick Demarchelier, Terence Donovan, Armet Francis, George Hoyningen-Huene and Bastiaan Woudt. Included will be a selection of some of Patrick Demarchelier’s most notable portraits of Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Princess Diana.
Complementing these works will be a selection of small unique contact prints by Terence Donovan, as well as his portraits of British artists and photographers such as Norman Parkinson, David Bailey and Francis Bacon. One of the standout pieces from our booth will be George Hoyningen-Huene’s iconic and sought-after ‘Divers’ signed by Horst P Horst. Armet Francis’ vibrant colour photographs taken in Brixton Market at a time when Brixton had developed a large Black British Community will portray Black British style and the effervescent and bold fashion of the 1970s in London. Finally we will show a selection of Bastiaan Woudt’s captivating back and white photographs composed of charcoal tones and elegant lines.
In addition we will present a selection of rare vintage and early prints by Alexander Rodchenko and El Lissitzky. A further component of our booth will consist of works by the Italian pioneer of colour photography, Franco Fontana, renowned for his intense and abstracted ‘scapes’: landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes and bodyscapes.
