Description

UDO SPREITZENBARTH is an internationally renowned art and fashion photographer, whose photos have graced the covers of Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire and many more. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions in New York, Berlin, Shanghai, Beijing, Cologne, Frankfurt, and Stuttgart. Udo has captured many of the iconic stars and personalities of our time including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Meg Ryan, Salma Hayek, John Legend, The Jonas Brothers, Tyra Banks, The Beach Boys, and Usain Bolt, among many others. He also photographed artist legends such as Christo, Richard Meyer and the late Helmut Newton. Inspired by the Baroque painter Caravaggio as well as classic Hollywood Film Noir, his characteristic use of light and shadow dramatizes the scene and creates tension. This tension, along with the capture of a specific moment, seems to allow the viewer to get a glimpse into the soul of the subject, rather than just seeing the two-dimensional surface.

 

About my work: Being inspired by the Baroque painter Caravaggio as well as classic Hollywood Film Noir, I am aiming to use light and shadow to dramatize the scene and create tension. This tension, along with the capture of a specific moment, seems to allow the viewer to get a glimpse into the soul of the subject, rather than just seeing the two-dimensional surface. 

 

About this project: Between Light And Dark is a collection consisting of timeless "Film Noir" style portraits of an eclectic mix of influential figures with a modern interpretation. Creating lasting pieces of art to balance the fast-paced, short-lived social media-driven aesthetic that we are surrounded by. 

 

If I won the 25,000 Telos how would I spend it? I would HODL until the time is right and then reinvest some of it in real estate and travel to exotic places to create more art.


Each of the NFTs will be directly tied to a physical print in the real world. This project will serve as a means to tie the digital and the physical worlds together, disrupting the traditional means of proving provenance and pioneering new spaces in photography.
