MONTAUK BY RAPHAEL MAZZUCCO

Works by world-renowned fashion photographer and contemporary artist to go on display at London gallery

The works of an internationally acclaimed Hollywood photographer are set to go on display in London this week.

 

Castle Fine Art, Molton Street will be displaying original works from one of the world’s most influential and talented fashion photographers and artists, Raphael Mazzucco, from Saturday 6th September.

 

As a photographer, Mazzucco’s style has evolved over the years and now seamlessly brings together painting, drawing, photography, collage and resin, to create layered art that has an almost hypnotic quality.

 

Mazzucco’s bold collection, entitled Montauk, expertly merges both his love of photography and the sensuality of painting. The viewer is instantly taken to the black volcanic beaches of Iceland, the lush, green mountains of Northern Vietnam and the barren salt flats of the Dead Sea, showcasing the world’s most beautiful women in settings that reflect this. 

 

Kate Hale, Castle Fine Art, Molton Street’s gallery manager, said: “It is a privilege that we can exhibit the works of such a renowned photographer and contemporary artist at our Molton Street gallery. 

“Mazzucco’s latest collection, Montauk, really is breathtaking and must be seen first-hand to fully appreciate the expertly crafted technique, skill and time that has gone into creating each piece; the viewer will fall in love with the romance and beauty conveyed by the art.”

Speaking about his work and the inspiration behind his latest collection, Mazzucco says: “I feel that life is a circle, it’s a journey that always ends back at home. Montauk is where I live, and where I create most of my work. I draw a lot of inspiration from my surroundings and love being in the moment… but even if the work is photographed in the remotest location, the journey always comes full circle back to my home, back to Montauk and my paint covered floors.”

 

After years spent honing his craft across Europe, his arrival in New York citygained theattention of fashion brands, which led to Mazzucco creating iconic imagery for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Guess Jeans, L’Oreal and Ralph Lauren.  His imagery has also appeared across some of the world’s most noted media such as Vogue, Marie Claire, Playboy and Vanity Fair. Alongside this, he is known for his celebrity portraiture of actors including Benicio Del Toro, Matt Damon, Susan Sarandon and Elizabeth Banks.

 

Mazzucco added: “I’ve been very fortunate to exhibit my work all over the world, from Milan and Melbourne, to Hong Kong and New York. However, it’s an exciting time when I’m bringing my works to a country that has never seen them before.”

 

The collection is free of charge to view and will be on display at Castle Fine Art, Molton Street from Saturday 6th September.
