The Collectivité of Saint Barthélemy joins Space Contemporary Art Gallery and Val’N Team Art Gallery together with hotel Guanahani, Tom Beach Hotel and La Plage to celebrate 40 years of Marco Glaviano in St Barth.
Marco Glaviano began his career shooting in St Barths and launching here the careers of some of the world’s most important supermodels including Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova and Paulina Porizkova and simultaneously putting the island of St Barths firmly on the map and known for its own natural beauty. The island joins together for this important anniversary and thanks Marco Glaviano for his contribution to the islands history.
A series of exhibitions and program of events is organised to mark the occasion.
Additionally a special limited edition collectors book has been published and is available. The book contains a selection of photographs throughout Glaviano’s career and comes with a special collectors fine art pigmented giclee print.
With a career spanning 4 decades this special exhibition presents Glaviano’s Supermodel series, nudes and extensive images of beautiful girls adorning the St Barths landscape. The show includes Glaviano’s earlier iconic images and his most recent work – a beautiful series of nudes, photographed in St Barths – proving that Glaviano still has the magic touch capturing the beauty of the female body in poised, elegant moments again and again.
