PRINTS & SERVICES
Natalie Goldstein is a remarkable photographer. Having spent years in front of the camera as a model, Natalie developed her own unique understanding of the profession, both technically and artistically.
Natalie’s eye is drawn to the aesthetics of the human form, beyond merely the body beautiful. Her subjects are poised and positioned to suggest Da Vinci’s divine proportions of humanity. They are athletic. They are graceful. They speak of refined elegance.
Take for example her ‘Duality’ series - the symmetrical balancing act reflects both performance and perfection.
What matters to Natalie is the play of light on the figure, the movement captured in the moment and the composition, which is carefully crafted to ensure maximum effect.
Natalie’s work has been compared to Helmut Newton, as both artists portray the female form as monumentally powerful. She also draws influence from Richard Avedon, whose portraits cross over from fashion photography into a fine art examination of character and personality, very much like Herb Ritts who was another inspiration in terms of composition and style.
Natalie grew up surrounded by fashion as a culture, she immersed herself with magazines and books on Versace and the like. Natalie recognised that in order to create impactful photography, she had to take it out of the bounds of traditional fashion editorial work and create iconic images that transcend place or time.
Natalie’s work is suggestive and at times provocative. She has the technical know-how to create incredible moving lenticular pieces, undertakes private commissions and has fashioned an artistic form of expression that is energetic, exquisitely constructed and for the viewer captivatingly stunning.
