Artist: Natalie Goldstein
Natalie Goldstein is a remarkable photographer, having spent years in front of the camera as a model and as a result 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 work has been compared to Helmut Newton, as both artists portray the female form as monumentally powerful. Natalie 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 impact in photography, one had to take it out of the bounds of traditional fashion editorial work and create iconic images that transcend place or time.
We have in Natalie an artist that moves the story of photography on, her work is suggestive and at times provocative, she has the technical know-how to create incredible moving lenticular pieces, she undertakes private commissions and has fashioned an artistic form of expression that is energetic, exquisitely constructed and for the viewer captivatingly stunning.
