MORE INFORMATION ABOUT DELIVERY

The artist

John Wright is a talented British photographer renowned for his portraits of the greatest stars of modern rock. The band U2, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, and Michael Jackson all belong to his body of work, as do his countless collaborations with prestigious magazines (Vanity Fair, GQ), with studios located between London, Paris, and Shanghai, and with luxury brands (Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Fendi). His photograph of singer Lily Allen posing with black panthers contributed to his international renown, enabling him to win magazine cover of the year in 2009. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, John Wright comes from a working-class milieu, and, despite his move to the flamboyant city of Los Angeles to work as a photographer, he has not forgotten his roots and affirms: ?What I do does not define me, just as where I grew up does not define me either.?  ...

JOHN WRIGHT

About the artwork

A photographer inspired by the relationships between people and places, John Wright treats his subjects with an elegance that captures their personality in a singular manner. His brilliant artistic career has traversed many genres. He made his name through fashion portraiture and regularly collaborates with emblematic brands such as Louis Vuitton and Dior, also providing images for publishing giants such as Vanity Fair and GQ . A master of staging, John Wright is inspired by the realm of cinema to produce his vibrant and playful compositions. Checkmate was taken in London in 2017 and reveals a female character in an extremely colourful interior. Using irony, many details in the image echo one another like a mise en abyme. The statuette that represents a zebra?s head placed on the windowsill refers to the contemporary painting hung on the wall, just as the motifs of the bouquet and the crown of flowers adorning the young woman?s head are repeated in the canvas.
