On October 23, 2014, the Emmanuel Fremin Gallery began exhibiting American singer-songwriter, musician, DJ and photographer Moby’s first solo show Innocents. VIPs, press and a select group of special invited guests had a chance to see his work from 5-6 p.m. that evening. The show is now open to the public and will run until December 31.
A photographer since he was 10 years old, Moby’s work layers colors, natural beauty and idyllic settings with his philosophical and visual meanderings. His Uncle was a photographer for the New York Times, and he grew up around film and darkrooms. In 2011, he released Destroyed, a book featuring photographs from his tours.
"We are delighted to have Moby joining on our gallery's eclectic roster of national and international artists as of this summer. His incredible artistic talent and popularity transgresses magnificently in contemplative, visceral images exploring a hypothetical post-apocalyptic psychological landscape,” said Emmanuel Fremin, gallery owner. “His interest in photography started out shy, before he laid out the foundation for such a successful musical career, and developed slowly but steadily over the years, culminating in a series of pictures inspired by the September 11 events, and their consequences on the mass consciousness at large.”
Innocents is inspired by the artist's move to the Hollywood Hills, and features lush large-scaled photographs depicting ominous landscapes and masked individuals. His cult of innocents are extreme, and represent reinvention. Emmanuel Fremin Gallery is open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
