Supermodels Exhibit is Reminder of Beauty Before Photoshop



    Steven Kasher Gallery

    Photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders opened his latest exhibition, "Supermodels of the '70s and '80s" at the Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea, featuring the likes of Beverly Johnson, Cheryl Tiegs and more.  It's the scant retouching that makes it extraordinary, apparently.

    The shots may be bare-boned ilfachromes of dressed-down subjects on plain backdrops, but those subjects just happen to be iconic supermodels. Not just any supermodels -- supermodels who have had their own retouching work done.  Poet Mark Strand described the photographer's look as a midpoint between realism and glamour, something that's definitely been achieved in this particular collection of headshots of beautiful women.

    The shots are being sold in a batch of ten in a leather portfolio, if you're so inclined, and the exhibition runs through February 27.

    The Steven Kasher Gallery is located at 521 West 23rd Street. (Open Tuesdays - Saturdays, 10AM-6PM)
