VELKOMMEN TIL VERNISSAGE TORSDAG 24. SEPTEMBER KL 18

In his 30-year career as a photographer, Steen Evald has worked with a wide spectrum of projects. From fashion, jewellery, beauty and interior design to portraits of actors and celebrities, to ad campaigns and films. For over a decade he has been the official photographer of the Danish Royal Family. His fashion images have appeared in various high-profile magazines, such as Vogue, Elle and Madame Figaro, among many others.

Evald’s evocative fashion images have been exhibited for seven consecutive years at the prestigious juried exhibition “Festival International de la Photographie de Mode” in Cannes.

Steen Evald immerses us in a beautiful, dark abyss. Out of which emerges glimpses of the female form - a mysterious geometry of alluring lines and curves. Revealing portraits of naked women with a natural beauty that’s baffling, beckoning and suddenly, in a split second, able to take our breath away.

Amidst the darkness and light, there’s an unspoken conversation between the model and the photographer. They know each other and enter into a zone of mutual trust. Ironically, the model is naked but it’s Evald who feels timid at first. The result is a stunning exposé of stolen moments. Such as Nanna at 2:16 pm. Nicoline at 11:09 am. Amalie at 2:04 pm. Images that swing from sharp to soft. Abstract to athletic. Sexy to shy. All captured with Evald’s graphic magic.

Unlike his impressive commercial portfolio, this is Evald’s foray into his subconscious. And unlike other photography, which tends to be trendy and temporary, these unretouched images are as enduring as they are mesmerising. In a world of Photoshop-aholics, it’s a refreshing take on the female body in its poetic purity.

Armed with an instinct for seizing just the right moment, Evald treats us to an elegant array of lyrical images which lull us into a state of intoxication. Where our only option is to surrender to our senses.

With Underneath it all … Evald opens an aperture into his soul. Seeking timeless beauty that’s at once intimate and unapologetic. Striking. Enthralling. And stripped of superficialities.

A universe where being naked almost becomes incidental.
