Here's the official announcement for my upcoming solo show in Hong Kong. Like a lot of big art shows in Asia, this one is not in a gallery but in a shopping mall. The Landmark is Hong Kong's ritziest luxury mall/hotel so the work will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people who normally wouldn't see my work. There won't be an actual opening - the work will just be on display starting the beginning of April and throughout all of May.
Steve Diet Goedde: The Modern Vintage
Duration: April 1 - May 31, 2013
8/F, One Exchange Square
Central, Hong Kong
The revolving door of fashion always comes back around to its roots and foundations. We look to bygone eras for the romance and passion of what we imagine was a better time when life was easier and less complicated. When gazing at these portals to the past, we see ourselves fitting into these eras through the lens of fashion and style. The modern vintage confirms that the fundamental things about us remain constant between then and now, and that only the exteriors change.
In addition to his other projects, Steve Diet Goedde has been working on this series since the mid-1990s up through the current day. With his passion for old-school glamour and photographic techniques, Steve remains faithful to the style and aesthetics of the past by shooting his imagery on film using medium-format cameras with little or no digital manipulation.
