Scott Nichol and Olaf Starorypinski's exhibition

From March 6th to 31st, 2009
Monsoon Gallery
Bethlehem, PA, USA

" Two premier valley photographers, Olaf Starorypinski and Scott Nichol share their very different visions of the female form as expressive subject.

Each artist will show works from series that evoke the passionate and the pastoral, the industrial and the ephemeral.

Scott Nichol will be showing works from 3 contrasting collections of figure studies. The first collection explores the female figure and its place within the natural landscape. The second collection, called Some Ghosts, is a series of motion studies emerging from the transcendent and ephemeral nature of feminine beauty. The third collection in this show sculpts the figure from a marble palette of white studio light.

Model Stephanie Anne Landers

" It is always a treat to work with Stephanie. And the energy, emotion, and spirit she brings to all the ideas I have is inspiration itself. Continuing here with my series of ghosts. Natural window light against a grey paper backdrop." Scott Nichol

Olaf Starorypinski was born in London to Polish parents. He has lived in the Lehigh Valley for nearly two decades, currently residing in Emmaus and working from a studio in Bethlehem’s Banana Factory.

His background as a light designer influences his photography sharp, vivid work with intriguing subjects and flawless technique.

He photographs models in his studio and in some surprising, and recognizable settings. Bethlehem Steel has been photographed many times, but Starorypinski contrasts the stark industrial backgrounds with the soft curves of nude models for a stunning result unlike anything you have ever seen."
