Greg Lotus Photographs

Greg Lotus’ first photographic exhibition will be held at the Robin Rice Gallery. The opening reception will be held Wednesday, September 18th, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Inside the gallery, the viewer is surrounded by an arresting display of glamour in the wild. Drawing inspiration from classical paintings and geometric forms, Greg Lotus’ work has been compared to Herb Ritts, Man Ray and Richard Avedon, and his exhibition fuses his high fashion background with the rural environment of his youth. Yet Lotus admits to no formal training throughout his career, “I’m completely self-taught, lots of trial and error over the years.”

His foray into fashion photography was a twist of fate. In the 90s he was sharing living quarters with young models, and began photographing them to help them build their portfolios—work that eventually brought his work to the attention of agencies. When it comes to his own models, Lotus prefers the “unspoiled” types, holding castings to find those with quirk as well as beauty.

In the invitation piece, “Nurses” beauties in black bathing suits pop against a light background while being hosed down by a nurse. “You can almost feel the spray and hear the whoosh under the miniskirt,” says Lotus. Besides the visual play on light and dark, he says water is the linking element that turns the piece theatrical and makes it breathe.
