DESCRIPTION

Masters & Pelavin is proud to announce a solo exhibition of recent work by Swiss artist, Jean-Paul Cattin. This show will include large scale photographic prints mounted behind plexi. This will be Cattin’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, and in New York City.

A celebrated contemporary photographer, Jean-Paul Cattin creates images that exist between documentary and staged photography, like fictionalized documentary. His constructed narratives are very controlled, although at first glance they might be perceived as spontaneous tableaux. Cattin’s work borrows from the strategies of fashion, commercial, and advertising photography, and his pictures are technically admirable.
