EXHIBITION: Steve Diet Goedde at Garboushian Gallery


Steve Diet Goedde in FEMMINSTANTS

Until February 12th, 2016

@Garboushian gallery, Los Angeles

Photographer Steve Diet Goedde is known for his subtle approach to photographing the high-gloss world of erotic art in a very non-gloss, down-to-earth style. His photographs are intimate and sexual, provoking the senses and engaging the imagination. Goedde has been a fine art erotic photographer for 25 years. His attention to composition and black and white tonal quality has given him the reputation of being “The Ansel Adams of Erotica.”

 Self taught from an early age, Goedde fell in love with the tangible photograph. Velvety and thick, as if holding a mere instant hostage in the frame like a time capsule, the tangible photograph has enveloped his creative mind and spirit since his first touch. The sensory qualities of photography are often forgotten in today’s digital age, but it is these soft and sensual relics that inspire and engage Goedde to create his one-of-a-kind works of art.
40 unique emulsion transfer photos at the gallery’s inaugural solo exhibition of photographer Steve Diet Goedde in FEMMINSTANTS.
In FEMMINSTANTS, Goedde created unique works of art using a delicate Polaroid-transfer process that creates original archival photo-objects that cannot be duplicated. These small snapshots are like peepholes into the intimate personal moments of his models. They are unlike any work he has shown before. They explore the subtle side of feminine sexuality with classic style with a contemporary eye. Goedde’s new work highlights the delicate and intimate moments of confident, strong and independent women, taking their destiny and sexuality into their own hands, on their own terms. Unlike so much sexualized photography in media today, these women are not performing for you; you, as the viewer, are a friend, a lover, a confidant-invited to be a part of this very real, modest moment.
