Artist of the moment…..Michael Dweck

Michael Dweck is a contemporary American photographer born in Brooklyn, New York in the year 1957. Dweck enjoys creating fantasy and sometimes exotic worlds in his photography work. He grew up in Long Island and attended the Pratt Institute for college where he studied architecture. He soon switched majors and graduated with Fine Arts and communications degree.

In this clip a wonderful montage of works by this artist:

In the 1990s Michael Dweck opened his own commercial photography studio. This studio won many international awards. Dweck closed this company in 2002 with the idea to devote himself fully to fine art photography.

Sotheby’s ran a show for the artist in 2006. The first time a show was given at the famed auction house that featured a living artist.

Dweck is based out of Montauk, New York and also New York City.

Price range information: Works range from $5,000 to $30,000.

I found the photographs of Dweck remind me of British photographer Christopher Bucklow. Bucklow uses the silhouette shape of female figure and infuses with light giving it a “Goddess” type of feeling. Below an example of Bucklow’s style.

A new way of seeing the traditional figurative work is always appreciated!
