About

Large Size UNIQUE photograph, Silver Gelatin Print, Analog Photography FRAMED IN BLACK WOOD FRAME (see pics) The Monte-Carlo Series captures Shabelewska's precocious talent before she created the widely acclaimed PEACE & LOVE series (2008) that was featured in O Magazine (Oprah Winfrey) In June 2008 p. 179 and "Portrait of Helmut Newton Reach for the Stars" (1995). THE MONTE-CARLO SERIES (1980), Early works from 1980, was Executed in 2011 Shot in abandoned 19th century villas in and around Monaco and Monte-Carlo between 1980 and 1982, the photographs feature young women in the artist's intimate circle of friends playfully posing in eccentric vintage attire. Shabelewska captures a juxtaposition of space and form with a sense of playfulness resulting in images that are provocative and flirtatious. In 2011, 12 photographs from the series of 24 were presented for the first time at Soufer Gallery on Madison Avenue in New York, curated by Director Rozita Shay with the support of the Consulate General of Monaco. The complete series is comprised of 24 images. All silver gelatin prints, framed in black wooden frames. Unique edition in large format © silas shabelewska, all rights reserved.
