Tableaux Vivants: 1993 to 2000

.

.

Artist Statement: From the book of Tableaux Vivants, Editon Stemmle. Zurich, 2002
.

My visual dialogue is based on the premise that life is the play – and display – of creation.  I agree with Shakespeare that “all the world’s a stage.,” an endless enigmatic production with moments of great joy, sorrow and surprise.  Surprise is a magical element that I try to create in a tableau process.

Tableaux are my vehicle.  The cast of characters consists of friends, acquaintances, lovers or strangers who enjoy the performance of being photographed.  Like the jazz-fusion artist I look for the odd juxtapositions, the unexpected mise en scene or multicultural influences that sometimes creates a new or ambiguous view of the world.

STUDIO NEWS: RECENT VINTAGE PRINT SALE

.

This 11 x 14 inch vintage photograph entitled, “Dinner For Two, Philadelphia 1995  is from the book of Tableaux Vivants, published by Editions Stemmle, Zurich, 2002.  The archival print was recently sold to a private collector in Philadelphia for $2500.00.  It was the only print of its kind in inventory and from a  very rare limited edition of prints. The picture is part of a series of Tableaux Vivants I produced between the years 1993 to 2000. This particular photo was staged at the Striped Bass in Philadelphia,  once declared by Esquire Magazine as the number one restaurant in the United States for dining at the time.  Owners, Joe Wolf and Neil Stein commissioned me to make the photograph for an ad that would later run in Philadelphia magazine to promote the famous restaurants “midnight breakfast”.
