Our friends over at Wessel + O’Connor have the pleasure of now exhibiting the work of Jim French. French has been one of the premier photographers of the male for nearly five decades. 

Drawing on his background of schooling in fine art and a successful career in commercial art, he brings to his photography an intuitive understanding of composition and design, and a vital appreciation for the sculptural qualities of surface and light. In a field fraught with prejudices and misconceptions, bias and censorship, he has shown again and again that the male nude is a subject worth of fine art when treated with discernment and intelligence.

-Robert Mainardi

The gallery will also have autographed copies of French’s newest monograph, “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor: Polaroids by Jim French” for purchase during the exhibition’s run, concluding July 13.
