Stefano Nicolini : CHAMPIONS
3rd July – 11th August 2012
In this historic year of the London Olympics, The Richard Young Gallery announces a solo exhibition to celebrate the majesty of human athleticism, seen through the eyes of world-renowned fine art photographer, Stefano Nicolini.
In a collection of 28 images, Nicolini explores the essence of human sporting physicality in all its guises – such as a swimmer’s strength, the agility of the horseman, the muscular determination of the boxer, or the liquid grace of the diver. These images convey an innate physicality with breathtaking expressive force and exhilarating clarity of light.
‘In this series, my consideration and focus has been on the human and in the succession of the exhilarating physicality of movement, deploying an explosive visual force that touches carnality in its essence. I avoid digital manipulation of my subjects, preferring to reveal an abstraction that becomes a manifestation of the purity of the athletic act.’
