INSPIRATION: DAVID BELLEMERE
~NOVEMBER 13, 2017~
I have been an admirer of David Bellemere's work for years. I first saw his images in a fashion spread for Flaunt around 2007, and I immediately felt the impact of his aesthetic. He captures moments with his subjects that allow the viewer to feel the privilege of experiencing it first hand...intimate moments most of us only dream of.
Bellemere is the subject of a newly released documentary on STARZ called Nude, where he and Steve Shaw are pit against one another in the completion of a Pirelli-esque calendar/ art piece to debut at Miami Art Basel. The documentary highlights the artist's struggle to navigate the autonomy of vision and process in the completion of commissioned work. In addition, there are interesting undertones of distrust of populous taste by Instagram and it's inevitable failure to result in real market value.
