WATERHOUSE & DODD Announces Major Exhibition of Photographs, Xavier Guardans: Self-Portraits and Accompanying Book Launch

Exhibition Dates: September 9 – 30, 2016 at 960 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10021

This September, Waterhouse & Dodd, the international dealership with galleries in Europe and the USA, presents a major exhibition in New York of black and white photographs by renowned artist Xavier Guardans. An avid traveler and explorer, Guardans spent a decade traveling the globe shooting a wide variety of landscapes and rock formations, each one incorporating a beautiful nude.

The forty-five works on view are definitively not [just] images of nudes gratuitously decorating the wild outdoors. The landscapes exhibited range from Japan, China, and Patagonia, to Utah and California, simultaneously exposing the inter-connectedness between natural beauty and our relationship to our surroundings. Guardans himself notes that the series is “A story of interchangeable roles, in search of a silent common ground.”

Ray Waterhouse, Guardans’ dealer, says, “The works really are a three way collaboration between artist, model and landscape. The integration of the women in the diverse landscapes is incredibly creative – the girls are portrayed both as gorgeous women and anonymous accompaniments to rock formations.”

Waterhouse also acclaims the sheer quality of these stunning photographs, “Xavier’s work is beautiful, unique, technically brilliant, and also, sexy. The quality of the printing, rich in contrasts, means that the digital reproductions you see on a screen in no way convey the amazing quality and detail of the actual fine art photographs. These works have to be seen in person.” Continue reading

Manus x Machina explores how designers reconcile the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear. It addresses the distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) as discordant tools in the creative process, and questions the changing delineation between haute couture and ready-to-wear.

This ensemble, which Lagerfeld has described as “haute couture without the couture,” exemplifies the confluence of the hand (manus) and the machine (machina). Made from scuba knit, a synthetic material, the dress is hand molded, machine sewn, and hand finished. Maison Desrues (founded 1929) hand embroidered the buttons with gold, glass, and crystals, and Atelier Montex (founded 1939) hand embroidered the medallion with glass, crystals, paillettes, anthracite cannetilles, and gold leather leaf motifs. The train of scuba knit and silk satin is machine sewn and hand finished. Lagerfeld’s hand-drawn design was digitally manipulated to give it the appearance of a randomized, pixelated baroque pattern and then realized through a complex amalgam of hand and machine techniques. Atelier Lunas (founded 1993) used a heat press to transfer the rhinestones; Atelier Anne Gelbard (founded 1997) painted the gold metallic pigment by hand; and the pearls and gemstones were hand embroidered by Cécile Henri Atelier (founded 1982).


During the extended hours, the Museum’s Great Hall Balcony Bar will be open until midnight as well, with appetizers, full bar service, and music by the ETHEL and Friends string quartet. The Met Store‘s exhibition shop adjacent to the galleries will also be open, featuring a range of products inspired by the exhibition, including the exhibition catalogue and an exclusive collection of fashion accessories, jewelry, and publications. The Manus x Machina galleries will be the only galleries in the Museum open to the public during the extended hours.

The Face Of The Future: RoC® Skincare Predicts The Most Wrinkle-Prone Cities In America

Third Annual Wrinkle Ranking Forecasts Cities Most at Risk for Skin Damage by 2040

What will the year 2040 look like? While we can’t imagine the technological advances or geopolitical developments that lie ahead, a new study from anti-aging pioneer RoC® Skincare offers a preview of what you can expect to see when looking in the mirror several decades down the road. And one thing is clear for residents of top U.S. metropolitan areas: the decisions made today can and will impact your skin health in the future.

To shine a light on how these factors affect skin aging, RoC® Skincare has again partnered with independent research firm Sperling’s Best Places for the 2016 RoC® Wrinkle Ranking: a city by city look at the metropolitan areas’ risk for skin damage and premature aging by the year 2040. The analysis is based on factors commonly known to affect skin health – lifestyle, occupational and environmental influences. (***See Detailed Description of Methodology Below)roc®-wrinkle-ranking-forecast-of-2040-climate-breakdown-15-HR

The third annual RoC® Wrinkle Ranking predicts that in the year 2040, Philadelphia will reign as the most wrinkle-prone city in America, thanks to high stress levels, more airborne pollution, lengthy commute times and higher than average smoking rates. On the other end of the spectrum, San Jose will claim the least wrinkle-prone title in 2040, due to its shorter commute time, smaller population size and anticipated shift toward a wetter climate.
