One Of The World’s Most Celebrated Fashion Photographers To Showcase New Collection In Birmingham
Raphael Mazzucco, one of the world’s most celebrated fashion photographers, brings Canada to Birmingham this week as he unveils his new collection, Gaia.
Mazzucco will be flying over to the city from the United States to visit Castle Fine Art’s gallery in the Mailbox on Friday 13th September between 18:00 and 20:00. Visitor’s will be able to view the incredible new collection and discuss his techniques and inspirations behind each piece.
Stemming from the Greek word meaning ‘Mother Earth’. Gaia seeks to encapsulate the beauty of the earth and those who inhabit it through the power of photography and mixed material. Raphael Mazzucco’s work is perhaps some of the most relevant photography today. He began with a ‘base image’ in muted colours to create each piece. He then embellished each with layers of paint and foraged objects and materials, before finishing with hand-poured resin to add a vibrant touch, bringing the artwork to life.
After spending years honing his creative abilities in Italy, France and Amsterdam, it was Raphael Mazzucco’s arrival in New York City that garnered attention from some of fashion’s elite and saw him work on photographic campaigns for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Guess Jeans and Ralph Lauren.
This is great news for Birmingham’s ‘Castle Fine Art’, after the photographer’s work has featured in the likes of L’Official, French & Italian Vogue, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, Playboy and L’Uomo Vogue.
Speaking ahead of his appearance in Birmingham, Raphael Mazzucco said: “Gaia is a nod to history and time, the female form, the mother and creator, nature and earth.
Working on the collection has brought me back to nature again in a way I really enjoy, enhancing the spontaneity of the image by utilising the raw materials I have around me.”
Prices start at £595 for limited edition prints and £4950 for original artworks.
Castle Fine Art – located in The Mailbox, Birmingham – will welcome visitors for Mazzucco’s collection on 13th September between 6pm-8pm.
