Tyler Udall: Introducing / London
The Little Black Gallery, in conjunction w Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art, New York, is proud to introduce TYLER UDALL From 11 February - 16 March 2013.
This will be his debut exhibition anywhere in the world.
As an emerging photographer Tyler Udall has already made a big impact in American photography. In his two short years as a photographer he has shot for several prolific fashion and art magazines and published a book of his haunting imagery, which sold out.
Based in London in the early 2000’s, Tyler Udall was ‘senior fashion editor’ at Dazed & Confused, Another, and Another Man and was involved in creating iconic covers of Kate Moss, Kirsten Dunst, Tilda Swinton and Nathalie Portman. He returned to New York to take up the role of Creative Director for the agency ‘Fred and Associates’, where he teamed up legendary fashion greats with world leading artists.
His photographs stand out “because his images are not gimmicks. His organic way of working allows his photographs to go beyond preconceived ideas of aesthetic and his approach takes you beyond conventional concepts of beauty”. His images are reminiscent of other great fine-art photographers Juergen Teller and Ryan McGinley, who was also introduced by Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art.
Talking about the pictures in his debut show Udall said: "Photos are meant to be a kind of diary for me. It's a record of the people and places in my life and how I see them. I suppose I want to present a body of deeply honest memories, often times through distortion. Everyone I photograph is very near and dear to me for one reason or another. The images in this show were taken between 2010 and 2012 and are directly tied to my loved ones in and around Vancouver and New York ... AKA Home."
Udall is currently based in Vancouver as Fashion Director at the Blanche Macdonald Centre - Canada’s top fashion school.
