Carlton Fine Arts is pleased to announce the exhibition Between Light and Dark by Udo Spreitzenbarth, a collection of “Film Noir” inspired artistic celebrity portraits. On view from June 16th through July 16th, the show will spotlight more than 20 photographs at the Carlton Fine Arts Ltd. location at 543 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10022.

Udo Spreitzenbarth is an internationally renowned art and fashion photographer, whose photos have graced the covers of Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and many more. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions in New York, Berlin, Shanghai, Beijing, Cologne, Frankfurt, and Stuttgart. Udo has captured many of the iconic stars and personalities of our time including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Meg Ryan, Salma Hayek, John Legend, Tyra Banks, The Beach Boys, and Usain Bolt, among many others. He also photographed artist legends such as Christo, Richard Meyer and the late Helmut Newton.

Works to be spotlighted will include photographs of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tyra Banks, Jeffrey Wright, Shark Tank’s Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary, The Jonas Brothers, Meg Ryan, The Beach Boys, Alexander Dreymon, and more.

Inspired by the Baroque painter Caravaggio as well as classic Hollywood Film Noir, his characteristic use of light and shadow dramatizes the scene and creates tension. This tension, along with the capture of a specific moment, seems to allow the viewer to get a glimpse into the soul of the subject, rather than just seeing the two-dimensional surface.
