Laura Rathe Fine Art hosts an exhibition of current and past works by notable contemporary photographer George Krause. As part of opening night, patrons and photography enthusiasts dressed and adorned in all white attire will have the opportunity to have the artist shoot their portrait with his signature light-box technique as demonstrated in his Sfumato series. Portraits will be available for purchase in three different sizes and Krause will be available for private commissions.
Krause's Sfumato series differs from conventional portraiture. The primary light source comes from behind the subject, creating a dramatic effect where principal features are cast in shadow while secondary facial features are highlighted.
Krause was born in Philadelphia in 1937 and received his training at the Philadelphia College of Art. He received the first Prix de Rome, the first Fulbright/Hays grant ever awarded to a photographer, two Guggenheim fellowships and three grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
