JAN C. SCHLEGEL
»PURE – Revelations in Silver Platinum Iridium Rhodium«

His works are a reminiscence of the original genre of photography and at the same time a renaissance of old artistic photographic craftmanship, which is able to combine two features: achieving the highest quality and capturing the beauty for eternity. On display are 43 Photographs of his latest series ”Creatures of the seven seas” and “Of Monster and Dragon” as well as a selection of his works from “Essence” and “Muses – Homage to Auguste Rodin”.



“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it”
This sentence from Irving Penn, one of the most influential photographers in recent history and reinventers of the platinum printing process in the sixties, Jan C. Schlegel often refers to when he speaks about his works. Pushing the boundaries of his medium he asks universal, existential questions about identity, beauty and the uniqueness of every living being in all their details, shapes and structures. Furthermore, he has mastered the art of photography - by studying, analyzing and exploring. As a result of his way of approaching his subjects, he is able to create almost surrealistic portraits by focusing on the essence of things with remarkable deepness.


Jan C. Schlegel works exclusively (only exception: "Creatures of the seven seas" with Leica S) with a 4 x 5 inch Linhof Technica running-floor camera on traditional film completely without digital post-processing. All prints are personally hand-printed by him as platinum, salt or toned silver gelatine prints and partly toned with an independently developed mixture of the photographer. Each print is therefore unique.


Jan C. Schlegel lives in Nuremberg, his works have been exhibited for many years in galleries, festivals and art fairs worldwide, in Germany exclusively at IMMAGIS ART·PHOTOGRAPHY.

Joachim Schmeisser
Seit vielen Jahren fotografiert er die letzten Giganten Afrikas aus allernächster Nähe und erschafft außergewöhnlich intime Portraits des vom Aussterben bedrohten Großwilds. Mit seiner neuen Serie »The Last Of Their Kind« setzt Joachim Schmeisser den Fokus auf die Schönheit der Schöpfung und ihre Vergänglichkeit. Es sind zeitlose Arbeiten die auf verschiedene Weise interpretiert werden können:  Als Zeugnisse einer fernen Vergangenheit oder als ikonische Erinnerungen einer nahen Zukunft in der wir diese majestätischen Geschöpfe nur noch auf Fotos oder in wenigen Zoos bewundern können. Sie sind Hommage und Mahnung zugleich – visuelle Botschaften mit dem Ziel, unseren getrübten Blick auf die eine unendlich komplexe aber auch verletzbare Natur zu schärfen und zu erkennen welche Schätze wir unwiederbringlich verlieren können. 
»Der Mensch wird nicht ruhen bis aus Profitgier und dem lukrativen Geschäft mit der Lust am Töten auch die letzten dieser Giganten Geschichte sein werden.« Joachim Schmeisser

GREG GORMAN
THE OUTSIDERS: BEST OF AND BEYOND



On March 13, 2019, IMMAGIS will open the latest solo show by legendary American legendary American photographer Greg Gorman. Under the title »The Outsiders«, this special selection of Gorman’s most famous photographs of prominent musicians, visual artists, and actors, mostly hailing from the United States. Portraits of David Bowie, with whom Gorman worked for more than 15 years, as well as his long-time friend Grace Jones, are displayed alongside his images of Andy Warhol, Jerry Hall, Bryan Ferry, Sharon Stone, David Hockney, Iggy Pop, Michael Jackson, Raquel Welch, and Michael Jordan, to name a few.



Greg Gorman (*1949, Kansas City, Missouri, USA) initially wanted to become a photojournalist, but found his true calling in 1968 when he took a picture of Jimi Hendrix during his concert in Kansas City. The photograph marked the start of his career as a celebrity photographer, lasting over 50 years. After receiving a Master of Fine Arts in 1968, Gorman began photographing actors and musicians. Many of his iconic black-and-white images would go on to appear on movie posters and CD covers, or grace the pages of magazines such as Life, Newsweek, Vogue, and Rolling Stone. Gorman’s photographs were featured more than 20 times on the cover of Andy Warhol’s Interview.

Parallel to his portraiture work, Gorman has also created a remarkable body of work in the area of nude photography. With his unique style characterized by sharp contrasts between shadow and light, he concentrates on the lines and contours of the face and body. The result is a classic aesthetic that combines the timeless beauty of human nature with erotic charisma. Gorman’s images of David Bowie’s wife, Iman, Brigitte Nielsen, and male star models Tony Ward



For the first time, those powerful nudes will be complemented by a small number of Private Works, taken between 2000 and 2015. While Gorman’s approach to depicting the male body is similar to that in his commissioned works, the more intimate settings and varied approaches to lighting and color reveal further dimensions of Gorman’s skilled portraiture. Many of the photographs were shot during workshops the photographer has conducted around the world since 1988.

SYLVIE BLUM / GIOVANNI GASTEL
POWER MEETS POETRY





Following the lighthearted summer exhibition “Best of ‘ME + CO’ & ‘Pool Party’” by the French-Italian selfie king, Jean Pigozzi, Gallery IMMAGIS in Munich will present a first-class double exhibition on 25 October 2018. “Power Meets Poetry” showcases iconic as well as newly discovered works by photographers Sylvie Blum and Giovanni Gastel, paying tribute to strong women with an attractive juxtaposition of images from the 1990s to the present.




Sylvie Blum (b. 1967, Austria) is a classic example of a model turned photographer. The former model was photographed by the likes of Helmut Newton and Jan Saudek, and after marrying renowned erotic photographer Günter Blum she became his model and muse. Honing her photographic skills at the Mannheim College of Art, she moved behind the camera after Günter Blum’s death. The body of work she has developed since the end of the 1990s, inspired by photographers such as Leni Riefenstahl and Herb Ritts, depicts the female body in highly stylized and aesthetically arranged poses. Blum’s close-up images of brightly painted lips, minimalist portraits, and oiled athletic bodies also reflect her female perspective of her same-sex counterparts. Sylvie Blum lives and works in Los Angeles, where she is represented by Fahey Klein Gallery.


Giovanni Gastel (b. 1955, Italy) is considered to be the grand seigneur of Italian fashion photography. Like no other, he interweaves poetry with classical commercial photography with a sense of elegance and reverie, while remaining stylistically flexible. The exhibition Power Meets Poetry presents Gastel’s enchanting images of women as angels, his butterfly scenarios, as well as front-facing portraits shot for fashion brands such as Krizia or magazines such as Vogue Spain. Through the air of romance that infuses his images time and again, his female models reveal strength in their stance and gaze. Gastel has drawn on both Renaissance and Pop Art for his work, while his love of poetry finds expression not only through photography but also through his own poems. He is Honorary President of the Association of Italian Professional Photographers, and a permanent member of the Polaroid Museum of Chicago. In 2002, he received fashion’s equivalent of the Oscar for photography at the prestigious Italian event La Kore, Oscar della Moda.

JEAN PIGOZZI
BEST OF »ME+CO« AND »POOL PARTY«




After its celebrity-based solo show by Olaf Heine, gallery IMMAGIS is back on June 21st with an even more intimate exhibition – this time by French/Italian photographer, investor, and art collector, Jean Pigozzi. With around 40 small-format, mostly black-and-white images, this show will feature the best of Pigozzi’s famed series Pool Party as well as his latest series ME & CO, a cultural chronicle that the “unofficial creator of the selfie” started in 1974 and has been working on to this day.




It all began at a party at Harvard University in 1973, when Jean, son of Henri Pigozzi, founder of the Simca car company, took his first “double portrait” of Faye Dunaway. Casually approaching the young actress, the student reached out with his camera in hand, briefly asked permission, and in a click captured the image that launched a life-long passion project. Back then, taking selfies was “kind of odd” and “different,” but soon it seemed that everyone who was anyone posed with this young photographer. Pigozzi studied at Harvard, was inspired by Robert Frank, and spent his free time in New York City at the parties of the rich and beautiful. Here he captured himself on film alongside actors such as Steve Martin, John Belushi, Julie Christie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone, or musicians such as Art Garfunkel, Grace Jones, Rod Stewart, and Bono.
Over the years, Pigozzi found selfie-subjects in art legends Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha, power gallerist Larry Gagosian, provocative art personalities such as Ai Weiwei and Maurizio Cattelan, and many notable women, including Catherine Deneuve, Daphne Guinness, Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Elle Mapherson, and Cate Blanchett. With Pigozzi’s signature method of using his “long arm, a wide angle lens, flash-light and to be very fast,” no one was out of reach and quickly became part of Pigozzi’s visual diary. According to Pigozzi, he “never tried to do pretty pictures” and, in contrast to the paparazzi, he enjoyed access to exclusive events, becoming part of the it-crowd at a relatively young age.

His second series, “Pool Party,” shown at the Helmut Newton Foundation in summer 2017, is another brilliant example of the high-profile circle of friends that Jean Pigozzi calls his own. We encounter spontaneous, surprising, and refreshing snapshots taken during his legendary summer parties, traditionally held between June and September at Villa Dorane in Cap d’Antibes in southern France. The residence was built for Pigozzi’s father in 1953 by Ettore Sottass and is a favorite get-away between his homes in New York, London, Paris, Geneva, and Panama. The pictured gatherings of the international jet set have the relaxed atmosphere of a casual gettogether – frequented by the likes of Mick Jagger, Naomi Campbell, Bianca Jagger, Nicolas Ghesquière, Liz Taylor, Mel Brooks, Helmut Newton, and many others.

OLAF HEINE
»HUSH-HUSH«













On April 19th 2018, the gallery IMMAGIS in Munich opened the solo exhibition HUSH HUSH by renowned photographer and director Olaf Heine. Some of Heine’s personally favorite portraits of musicians and celebrities were on display, as well as a selection from his BRAZIL cycle, which was published as a book by teNeues in 2014. Since the late-1990s Heine has risen to become one of the most sought-after portrait photographers. Working primarily in black and white, he is known for his quiet images full of power and intensity.
From Coldplay and U2 to Rammstein and Radiohead, from Sting to Sportfreunde Stiller, Heine not only shoots countless photographs of prominent musicians, but also plays a key role in determining how they are seen around the world on LP and CD covers, tour posters, and in highprofile music videos. Heine has also worked with top international athletes, writers, and Hollywood actors. Now for the first time in Munich, visitors can see his portraits of stars such as Oscar prize winner Jared Leto, Don Cheadle, Herbert Grönemeyer, Bret Easton Ellis, Snoop Dog, Bono, Anna Loos, and Thomas Kretschmann, in addition to portraits of athletes such as Philipp Lahm and Dirk Nowitzki, to name a few.

SONIA SIEFF
»LES FRANÇAISES«







“Les Françaises” – The French Women – with this simple yet telling exhibition title the native Parisian photographer Sonia Sieff (*1979) made her debut in Germany on 8 March 2018 at the Munich gallery IMMAGIS.
The series of works, for which the daughter of legendary photographer Jeanloup Sieff invited both famous and lesser-known French women to pose before her camera, comprises 155 photographs that serve as the basis for this solo exhibition. Her sensitive, discreet, and almost androgynous approach to nude photography is revealed in a selection of some 35 images, set in opulent hotel sceneries à la Bettina Reims, amidst refined architecture in daring outdoor shots, or in titillating detail shots.

JOACHIM SCHMEISSER
ELEPHANTS IN HEAVEN





In der Serie "Elephants in Heaven" nimmt uns der Fotograf Joachim Schmeisser mit auf seine ganz persönliche Reise in das Gebiet des David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenia, wo er die verwaisten Elephantenkinder, ihre Hüter und den tagtäglichen Kampf gegen die Wilderer dokumentierte. Seine einfühlsamen Aufnahmen der kleinen Waisenelefanten und die eindrucksvollen Portraits der geradezu mythischen Giganten Afrikas sind eine Sensibilisierung für den notwendigen Schutz dieser wunderbaren Kreaturen. Gleichzeitig sind sie eine Hommage an die Schönheit und grenzenlose Vielfalt unserer Natur.

IMMAGIS präsentierte einen Auszug seines Schaffens mit teils großformatigen Arbeiten. Erstmalig wurden auch Werke als exklusive Platin Palladium Prints gezeigt. Dieses seltene und aufwendige Edeldruckverfahren für fotografische Abzüge stammt aus dem Jahr 1878 und besticht durch eine einmalige und unvergleichliche Bildqualität sowie nahezu unbegrenzter Haltbarkeit.

ELLEN VON UNWERTH
HEIMAT





















Following a passionate kickoff in Los Angeles, IMMAGIS will show from the 15. September 2017 the exhibition HEIMAT with more than 30 works from German star photographer Ellen von Unwerth. Right in time for Oktoberfest, von Unwerth invites viewers on a photographic journey through her childhood homeland of Bavaria. Her lavishly staged series delights with erotically charged images tinged with a touch of nostalgia and full of lust for life. Her images convey a strong love fornature, a seemingly omnipresent religiosity, and a playful approach to the attributes and attractions typical of the region, making a visit to this exhibition both a sensual and visual treat. Von Unwerth’s visual ode to her HEIMAT combines old-world charm with fresh, provocative eroticism, cheerfully subverts traditional gender roles, and shows thateven lederhosen can be glamorous. Viva Bavaria!

Ellen von Unwerth worked as a top model in the fashion industry for ten years, before taking up the camera to become one of the most sought-after fashion photographers. Her photographs have appeared in countless magazines like Vogue, Interview und Vanity Fair. Ellen von Unwerth lives in Paris and New York.
