Swim Team by Greg Lotus

lotus_swim_team.jpg

Currently at Robin Rice is an exhibition of glamour photography by Greg Lotus: “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.”
